Reminder for new owners.....

Hopefully I'm allowed to do this here....


I still have supplies of laser cut aluminium bed supports and X-arm kits for the Ormerod.

Anyone interested, please contact me, they are also on eBay and eMakerShop.

Many thanks


Dave

Well that worked better than anticipated, thanks to those that ordered, much appreciated.

I have now got more plates and x-arm kits on order, will be about ten days and will possibly be the last batch, at for the x-arms anyway.

Feel free to contact me or pre-order in the meantime.

Hi Dave,

just placed my order on eBay, looking forward to this upgrade!

Interestingly eBay implies you have them available, but I'm not in a hurry, so no worries! smiling smiley

This will also bump your post as well winking smiley

Hi Dave,

Do you have a link to the post that shows what (changed) parts have to be printed to work with your X-arm kit.

Thanks.

Thanks.

If you z-nut is fixed in the acrylic part as it was on the first versions of ormerod, then you will need to print the printed z-nut-trap.stl, thats all

Thanks for that, i was not aware of the early model differences.

That should be the only part if needed.

Hi Davek,

I've just had a thought regarding your x-axis plates. When you make the next batch, could you move the 3 notches in the top a little further away from the the z-axis extrusion end? Currently, it is difficult to hang an extruder from the slot nearest the z-axis, because it won't swing into place unless you remove the z-idler or resort to other trickery when fitting it. 7mm should be far enough.

Wow, talk about bad timing winking smiley

The batch is already being worked on so this will have to on the next one, if there is one.

Good point though.

Not trying to pinch your business Dave but if anyone wants one of your aluminium beds and you don't have any, mine is for sale.

I have two bed plates left and eight x-arm kits left in stock.

I think this will probably be the last batch now as interest has stalled.

Get them while you can winking smiley

The aluminium bed plate or something similar is IMO an essential upgrade, and DaveK's offering is very good value for money. The arm kit costs rather more, but is a worthwhile upgrade if you will be using your printer a lot, especially when you do large prints.

Thanks DC42,

I can always provide more but will be on a pre-order basis until a workable qty is reached.

It is an excellent upgrade and has really transformed my own machine, I have had 100% positive feedback on this item.

I've put the bed plates back on eBay, I wasn't sure if I was going to do more but demand seems good so you can pre-order them if wanted.

Shouldn't be too long.


I have one x-arm kit left.

I am looking for both the bed and arm whats the price for both?
Re: Reminder for new owners.....
July 11, 2014 02:28PM
Hi

The beds are £40 and arms are £15 both plus p&p

You can pre-order the beds on eBay now, they should be in stock soon.

The arm kits can be pre-ordered by sending £44 (uk orders) to sales@ddmetalproducts.co.uk and I will dispatch as soon as I get enough pre-orders to process.

Hope that helps

That was discussed many threads ago winking smiley

The benefits did not weigh up against the likely cost of producing it unfortunately.
