Has anyone come across a source of replacements for the bed probe posts. They appear to be M3 x 8mm standoffs. These are the part the cap head screws on the bed touch to show that the bed was probed. I checked the usual places and ebay but cannot find anything the same.

It is fairly difficult to find cylindrical post and I failed doing do, but you can use hex post, as I have done on the D-Box, which use the same system, only on effector instead of the bed.
Ypu shall take care of the angle of the post (not that well done on the photos, but that is working anyway).

Note that on the Fisher, you shall retighten regularly these posts, they get play relatively quickly.

I'm pretty sure these are the ones we used to use: [www.mouser.co.uk]
We used to order quite a lot of parts from mouser.

Thanks for the info, they look right to me.

I've noticed on mine that the silver coloured plating wears off and then they either need replacing or rotating.
