Tinkey Struder for shorter shaft
by truehybridx, published
I bought a couple geared steppers from Trinity Labs which ended up being the shorter shafts.
Like a normal hacker I took a design I liked and worked it into fitting what I have on hand. Sketchup did a surprising job with this :P
V1 has the same exact holes as the original Tinkey Struder just with a wider back to line up the shaft a bit better. (I hope, currently testing)
V2 has a longer base to fit mounts for greg extruders.
I really needed the V2 only but figured I'd release them both.
Liked Byview all
Give a Shout Out
Print V1 or V2 depending on the mounting you need. (May slightly be off???)
Print the Idler from the original Tinkey Struder.
Use longer motor mounting bolts :(
***More info as I make progress
- It looks like making the dimensions for an exact fit was a mistake, filing down the original idler is probably required :(
- It might be neccessary to file or edit the body down by about half a millimeter, my shaft is long enough so I can adjust the hobbed gear some but i dont know if i trust it yet
