My printer is used on a 24/7 basis which means a lot of parts tend to wear down quite fast. one of them being the idler pullies. Got tired of the cheap overseas bearings and the shallow pullies that didn't allow much vertical travel and would bite into the belt. Naturally i was very skeptical on the quality of these bearings but i must say they are amazing! the taller pullies allow the belts to travel freely without binding into the flanges. I'm not sure where the pullies come from but the seem of good quality. So far they been doing great and i'm happy with them
Accurately machined pulley and above average (vs. Amazon/eBay) bearings. Used with 688-2RS 8mm ID bearings and spacer to avoid the tiny 5mm fasteners.
Exactly what I needed for my project. Works Great
I purchased this to rebuild and improve a 3D Printer that I own and was absolutely happy with the price and quality of this item. I was a bit worried that it was going to be too large for my application because the photograph gives no reference to size or scale. Once I received the item, I was very happy with the size and it is perfect for my needs. I wish OpenBuilds would add some type of size reference image with a ruler or something to give perspective on the size of some of their offerings. It would help immensely with choosing the correct item. I would recommend it to anyone.
