Beefy Idler Assembly
Redesigned to be stronger and more reliable, this Beefy Idler Assembly is a direct replacement for the extruder idler used on the LulzBot TAZ 6 and the LulzBot Mini 3D printer, and is compatible with previous LulzBot 3D printer models.
Featuring a stronger filament guide, stronger bearing braces, and thicker hinges, this redesigned extruder idler is used to evenly apply pressure to the filament, pressing it against the hobbed bolt used to drive filament into the hot end.
Upgrading is easy-- Unscrew the one M3 screw with a 2.5 mm hex driver. Remove the existing idler, remove the M3 nut, transfer it to the new Beefy Idler, and replace with the Beefy Idler. Screw the M3 screw back in and you are good to go!
