Replacement Parts
#1
Hello All
I'm new to the forum however I have had my DaVinci 1.0 for about 6 months.
I purchased it used from a guy and it was my 1st printer.
So far it has been doing great however recently I experienced some noise
coming from the Extruder area and after some inquiries I found that the
"free roller" in the feed mechanism was a little sloppy due to lack of lubrication
in that area. So I lubed it up and for the most part the creaking noise
I had previously is gone.
However it is still louder than I personally like.
Knowing that this "free roller" is made of aluminum and the shaft it
sits upon is steel, inevitably this will get worse. 
So I searched many terms like free roller, feed roller ect and I am 
honestly not finding anything.
So is there a replacement part for this?
Do you guys have a place you lean on for spare parts such as this?
Thanks in advance and have a great day

I take it you mean the extruder idler.
If so, a printed idler works pretty well ..... http://www.soliforum.com/topic/14195/ext...placement/
