2 x Slide

2 x Sliders

Slide

Attach the Slide (blue component) to the super speed arm.  Do this on the left and right arms.  Please note, we normally only supply 4 nuts and bolts for this b...

Please do note the heater uses high voltage at the moment.  Please do not connect/disconnect the heater while the power cable is connected to the printer.

The orange cable shows where the heater cable routes through o...
