Improbable,

Is there any chance you'd sell just the ACME rod and nut?

Thanks

Installed this last night. Went very well.

Didn't realize the wiki page existed so I just winged it. Glad I found that page because I wasn't sure why the thing was so dang tall :)

I'll take apart the top of my Z-axis tonight and cut off a bit of the screw. it should fit much nicer afterwards :D

I just wanted to let people know that the USPS has raised International shipping costs.
We are not just talking a buck or two either.
Shipping to Canada/Mexico has gone from approximately $13.00 to $20.00.
Shipping to the rest of the world has gone from approximately $17.00 to $24.00.

This is really going to suck for both buyers and shippers.
I have some low cost items that used to cost $3.00 to ship international, they now cost $6.55!
I have a feeling I am not going to be selling much outside of the USA anymore.

On the plus side:
I have 3 of the Z-Axis upgrades in stock and I will ship them at the old shipping prices.
The next batch should be ready sometime near the end of February and I will change the shipping cost at that point.

EDIT I am currently sold out of Z-axis upgrades. I hope to have more in stock soon.

Hi IC,

my Z-Axis Upgrade arrived today, thank you very much! Delivery took 48 days to Germany, just for the statistics :smile:

WOW!
48 days?
They must have taped it to a turtle and sent it on its way. :)
