Printer maintenance

I’ve got few failed prints lately, well little bit more than usual. So I blamed our garage not providing too stable conditions through the Queensland summer first, while did a bit of check on the printer condition and found the brass drive extruder gear wheel being bit worn out too.

It took few moments to order a set of new ones from eBay.

… and then 3 weeks to get them delivered.

Comparing a new one with the old one – there was not too much difference. Yes the old one looked bit used, but I don’t think it was nothing too serious to prevent it doing it job.

While having it all in pieces, I’ve cleaned up all relevant parts and did some tightening to get it ready for another printing marathon.

Looks good, doesn’t it? 🙂
