Tired of messing with springs for your extruder drive? This Direct Drive housing uses no springs. It's dead simple and works great by simply tightening the M8 cap screw. Mounts to the Proto-Plastik X-Axis Bearing Holder (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2021883)
Improved the bearing tightener housing. I highly recommend replacing any previous units with this unit that is much more sturdy. Also included STEP assembly.
I made some chages. Namely, I've improved the tightener by adding a printed knob with threads.
Also added instructions. Page 2 and 3 show details for this extruder.
