BOM Notes


  • A 1/2" schedule 80 pipe (in link) nipple will not fit a 5/8" auger. Is this an error?
  • What are the +extras for the LCD display?
  • Link to 50 rpm DC motor took me to a 100 RPM motor. Is that an error?
  • PWM speed controller link does not work - can you send a link that works?
  • For smooth 3/8" rod - just checking - is that supposed to be wood or steel?
  • Wood board - got any?
  • $66 for the rollers with shipping. Why not just print the rollers with TPU?
  • Would these lower cost fans work for the cooling?
