Re: Flipper servo

I have used the EMAX ES9256 in the past which is very similar except the wires come out of the bottom of the case. But a quick look round seems to show that is on back order even at Servo Shop where I have bought them in the past.

Re: [Question] Good servo for gripper?

Here was my original gripper with just a thin piano wire push rod bent into a curve to allow it to flex rather than stall the servo. https://oxrooq.db.files.1drv.com/y4mqSx4NEcg7eCUnOVWdWJ0wYiB90b1PeH7_FJ7SPZREoyw9d_RDiZlzZPOVIgjJPhRDjoD3CFlf-6Gvc08SHL8FkM9YKHnZ5WQeltOIsPil470g4JKfv8wDWXQxorLYgYY7PJ...

Re: [Question] Good servo for gripper?

It is never good to have a servo stalled for any great period it is better to introduce some kind of spring tension into the mechanism so the servo can reach its end stop even when the gripper arms cannot meet as below.

Re: Eddie J - DisinfectANT, Kinnettic Disassembly, Cilit BANG

I just ordered a couple of those for my Fleaweight.
You have to order them from the European section as the UK are not open due to Government restrictions.

Re: 3D printers

All nozzles are metal it is just that some have a small PTFE tube just above them to guide the filament through and act as a heat break. PTFE can usually go up to around 245 / 250 although it does deteriorate a bit and needs regular replacement at those temperatures. I have found all metal heads are...

Re: 3D printers

Filament comes in two sizes 1.75 mm (most common) and 2.85 mm and this is the diameter of the filament on the reel. The nozzle size is the diameter of the hole the melted filament comes out off normally 0.4 mm although you can get various other sizes. By telling the slicer these two values it knows ...
