Threading for support arm is worn


#1

Hi Ember community,

I can no longer tighten the screw that is used to calibrate the buildhead prior to printing. It seems like the threading is worn out. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? (Other than buying a new printer…)

Use a threaded insert (Helicoil). I did this to ours a while back. Don’t recall the thread size though… think it was a 10-32 or 10-24.
