You need to install D1 (diode) in the RAMPS board (under pololu on 1.3, 1.4)

I've got a couple of Tommy's kits and I can say it's wonderful. Kit is also very well thought. I think it's a must-have for any printer.

Is there a version for the Mosaic?

Awesome tutorial, thanks! The button looks a little too easy to hit... also have to adapt the holder to my Prusa design. I ordered the kit, too, appreciate the convenience/single shipping charge :-)

Thx, i've posted my take on the prusa design too ;)

Tommy, It really a nice product, well done!

Hey, can you share the part number for the reset? Also possibly where you purchased it?

Sorry, I meant the reset button!

I bought the reset button from a local store, not sure who the manufacturer is.
