Alternate source for Threaded Rod?

Postby inertianinja » 2015-Mar-Sun-08-Mar

My Metal Simple's threaded rod has some wobble, and really should be replaced.

It's $8 + $10 shipping on Printrbot's site.

Are there any alternate sources where I can find one for a more reasonable price?

McMaster Carr, Roton, Enco. Amazon might have some, but their screwy search engine dredged up a lot of unrelated stuff.

You could also get T8-8 from aliexpress. I'd see if you can find somebody that's used it on a simple first, but it made a big improvement on my KSCP.

VBX is printrbot's supplier. They do other companies as well if that helps.
