Looking for 8mm single start leadscrew
July 11, 2016 11:46AM
I am looking for 8mm leadscrews and nuts to upgrade the Z axis on a Prusa type printer - they must be single start type with a pitch of 1 to 2mm and should preferably be available in the U.K.. The commonly available 4 start ones are not acceptable. I know that good ones are available at a price, but this is just a final bit of tinkering to try to eliminate some residual Z wobble that bearing supports can't tease out.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Here you go. [www.amazon.co.uk].

Not sure what length you want, that link is for 200mm but the supplier has many more options on Amazon. I bought 3 off 1,000 mm long, 1mm pitch, single start for the printer I'm building from the same supplier. It's Amazon UK but the seller is based in China so delivery is a couple of weeks or so but the goods arrived well packaged and undamaged.

Thanks deckingman, I have ordered two at 300mm (I need 270mm) I thought that I had looked at all of the ones on ebay and Amazon but had obviously overlooked these ones.
