V3 Hybrid GrooveMount (and insulator) - (available on the GrooveMounts Page) we've been using hybrid insulators in our HotEnd Packs and Plastruders since the beginning of the year. These insulators combine the strength of PEEK with a touch of slippery PTFE. Our hybrids have proven to be extremely reliable in extensive field use. Hybrid insulators work with PLA and ABS. Length is 27mm,  16mm (5/8") diameter with groove for use with our 3/16" Wooden Mounting Pieces (sold separately).

The V3 Hybrid GrooveMount is available in Black or Tan - depending on what we have in our inventory. The Groove is designed to work with our new Wooden Mounting Pieces. If you have some of our Acrylic Pieces, we recommend you purchase new Wooden Mounting Pieces for use with our new V3 Hybrid GrooveMounts as the Acrylic Pieces will be loose.

 

3/16" Wooden Mounting Pieces (these have replaced the Acrylic Mounting Pieces) - for use with our Grooved Insulators. Choose the Pieces for the Filament Drive you will be using. If you do not see your filament drive listed, please inquire at info@makergear.com.
