new to the forum / printed parts question

Hey Guys,

Just wanted to say Hi - I just picked up a Prusa Mendel kit for our company - figured it would come in handy for some basic rapid prototyping!

We havent had a chance to get it up and running yet due to a bad batch of printed parts ordered online.... is there anyone out there with a couple extra shaft couplers for the vertical stepper motor control? (See attached image)

Thanks!

There are very few people in the Vancouver area currently. We have a Fraser Valley group that is much more active then this one. We also have a group at www.3D604.org that covers the entire lower mainland and someone there may be able to help you. I would offer to print them but all of my machines are running 24/7 printing Tantillus parts right now.

I can't offer you parts, but get the newer prusa2 style z couplings (nophead style). They're just so much better.

I second James' suggestion of the Nophead style couplings.

I can print you some if nobody else has already offered.
