Heated bed - Remove of washers and usage of Springs

Post by Bachgassenbande » Tue Aug 20, 2013 3:43 pm

Just had issues with the washers and nuts falling off during printing,
so I removed the washers and crincled washeres and installed stiff springs.

Running right now for one week with these improvement and had good experience according printing and leveling the bed.

Springs are operational from -40°C to 200°C
See data sheet enclosed
Pictures of tweak are following

If someone wants to have some springs I still have a bunch of them send me a PM

Thanks for that as I'm having the same problem and had just ordered some springs to do the same thing. I don't know if they are the same specs as yours though, will see how they go once they arrive.

My firm ordered these parts for protypes,
just laying around as we found out that we need diffrent springs.
I asked if I can have some of them to use them (so got 100)
I will not sell them, just donate

I'm also interested. But can we at least drop you some change via PayPal for "order handling" ? :-)

At least this would be nice.
Depends really where to send these springs.
Maybe some of you can take some countries (so I send some more...) and spread them there if requested.....

I'm in Ghent, Belgium. I can take care of Benelux, since I have a post office below my appartment if you want! But who wants more?
The one who sends needs to buy at least a bubblewrap envelope of sorts and post them I think it is about 3 to 5 euros. (?)
