Radio Shack Filament for $25/kg

Radio Shack has a one day sale today: http://www.radioshack.com/family/index. ... D+printing

I've never bought filament from them before, but I decided to give it a shot. Can't beat the price with free pickup in store.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Re: New H-1 Build Questions

I've got an original H-1. It's still going strong. I asked about the upgrade a couple months ago and they were sold out. I doubt they did another manufacturing run. Does your H-1 have ball bearings or acetal bearings? Upgrading to ball bearings was a big improvement for me. I have also upgraded the ...

Re: E3D V4 All metal hotend

I'm not exactly sure. I only have version 5. Its supposed to have many tweaks and be slight lighter, but I do not know the specifics. It's supposed to have the same exterior dimensions. The biggest change I can see is in the nozzle angle: m I think the steep taper on the new nozzle allows the "...

Re: E3D V4 All metal hotend

I finally got my E3D V5 hotend installed. It's awesome! Much less ooze with PLA and no worries about high temperature with nylon. This is by far the best upgrade I've ever done. You can tell a lot of time was spent making it perfect. Sanjay : Do you have an optimum layer width to thickness ratio for...

Re: Cheapest printer controller board

Have you thought about still using the 4-axis tb6560 board? I think you could use a computer and an Arduino Mega (~25 for a knockoff on Amazon) with Sprinter firmware to control it. Do a search on the tb6560 on the reprap forums. I'm in the same boat you are. I'm tired of my dinosaur parallel port c...

Re: Best Way To Remove Teflon Liner from PEEK?

I've had luck purposely jamming some pla in the teflon, and then pushing it out. I heat it up, push in some pla, let the pla expand and jam, and then push everything out with the cool end of the pla.

Re: Looking for an E3D Hotend in the US

If only it was that easy. I have an original H-1. I'm afraid the hotend with the fan duct isn't going to fit inside the bearing blocks. I have yet to find a good solution short of new bearings and mount.

Hey guys. Thanks for all the advice. I've got a E3D on order. I'm looking forward to it. :)

Re: Looking for an E3D Hotend in the US

Hmmm, sounds like SeeMeCNC needs to hurry up release their all metal hotend :mrgreen:. Everyone else seems to have supply issues.

I really want to avoid any plastics in the hotend, and all my filament is 1.75mm so 3mm is out.

From my reading on the reprap forum, the new designs are shipping. My current hotend is toast (literally) so I'd like a new one soon.

I've decided on an all metal hotend so I can reliably print nylon.

I like the looks of the MetalMagma, too bad it's sold out...

I'd like to use the E3D hotend on my H-1 printer. It has a j-head style groovemount. Has anyone used this extruder (or one like it) and know of an adapter I could use? Thanks in advance for the help.

I think you could fix it. I've had good luck burning PLA out with a blowtorch in a well ventilated area. That should work for ABS too.

Re: H1 hot end retrofit, or maybe just parts

Hmm. That's strange. I've communicated several times with SeeMeCNC about parts for my H-1 in the past year. They've always responded promptly and courteously- even calling me back Friday evening after hours to make sure that my order was correct. I'd give them a week or so to respond. They're a smal...

Re: Want to try some 3D Printing

20 mm/s isn't too slow. I say give it a try. You can always decide to use your hotend for a dedicated printer later on. I'm guessing that you will simply for the convienance. The original SeeMeCNC H-1 kits used that thermostat with a resistor change. The documentation is on this forum, and I'm still...
