After having issues with direct drive extruders on my Rostock I wanted to go back to my old faithful Wades extruder.

This bracket will allow you to turn a standard "J-Head" Gregs or Wades extruder in a Bowden arrangement. The hole at the top will take a 1/8" BSP Male to 6mm push fit pneumatic fitting and the two encapsulated nuts allow you to build the extruder before mounting to the printer.

Note: It now looks like my direct drive issues were with the stepper driver not the extruder :-(

I will no longer be posting designs on thingiverse, and will be moving to https://www.youmagine.com/users/stu_dknhttps://www.youmagine.com/user... due to makerbots underhand exploits regarding patents.

I'm having trouble finding the one from the picture on ThingiVerse as it's quite old, but I'm reasonably sure I've used this http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:18379http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... version of Gregs. If you want the version of Wades in the picture let me know and I'll add the STL files.
