You can google "Printrbot simple metal BOM" and find the Bill of Materials easily. It lists all the parts you should have.

And you can go to Printrbot.com and pretty easily find the instructions for assembling the Printrbot Simple Metal Kit. A PDF version is here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9oj0J-4qhdjMkNKbDFrcjI5SW8/view

Printrbot Plus operational January 2013
Brass threaded rods (5/16" X 18) & nuts for Z axis
GT2 belts & pulleys
Cable chain to reduce probability of fatigue failure in wires
E3D V5 Hot End, 0.4mm nozzle, also 0.8 and 0.25 in use occasionally
PB fan mount + 40mm fan -- using printed mount adapter, not the E3D supplied fan
Injection molded extruder gears
Optical Z "endstop" (custom designed and built)
Have used many pounds of T-Glase filament. Now also doing some work with Ninjaflex SemiFlex

Thank you very much, but right before seeing this and setting up my tax power supply for the second time just fried my printboard! I'm so upset, I was getting so close to having this thing dialed in and going great!
