Need a 1.0 idler arm and wheel
#1
Does anyone have a idler arm and wheel for the da vinci 1.0 laying around that they would be willing to part with? After thousands of hours on my machine, mine has worn completely out and I'm in dire need of a new one. [Image: idlerarm.jpg]

You might consider replacing the wheel with a bearing. It's honestly the best solution, as the factory design is simply insufficient as I previously documented. The diameter of this wheel is not super critical as long as it fits back together. As you probably realize, the tension on this wheel is used to limit the slip to the gear on the stepper motor. It won't matter if it's slick or if it has grooves.

I just replaced my extruder yesterday and was considering listing this assembly on ebay. If you are still looking for one, let me know.
