Hi all been too long... i was wondering if we have an eta on the r2 upgrade kit it is listed as sold out but no way to get on a list or anything that i cold tell. I would luv to get my hands on that z belt if nothing else. anyone know where to find it?
I have no clue when the upgrade will be available again. I can however give you any info on the parts you need.
The belt is 976mm long.
Let me know if you need anything else.
dont suppose you can tell me where to find 1? all i have found so far are way too long...
If you email email@example.com more than likely they can create an invoice for you.
The internal name for the part is GT2 976 BELT LOOP and comes in the BELTS/PULLEYS bag for the FT5 R2.
you are full of all sorts of useless information LOL, quit teasing and tell me where to find it please!
I suspect that may be where FT bulk orders some of their parts, but who knows. They have a wide selection of lengths. The prices are very good, but you don't get free shipping.
Useless information? I gave you everything you needed to get it from Folger Tech. Do with it as you will.
Folger Tech orders parts direct from the factories. Must be nice to be able to order very large amounts of stuff and enjoy the price cut that comes with it.
so you are suggesting FT has them but doesn't list them for sale? Since the kits were sold out, i was wondering if they were available separately... thanks much will give that a try too
Such as this one? -
488 teeth, 976mm total length. $10.49, free shipping from Pomona, California, in stock (at least for now).
That appears to be about the right length for the application.
here is their reply. no offer to sell me 1...
Hi Paul,We don't sell these individually yet but we will have them listed on our site soon. In the mean time you could probably get one on Amazon but if you have time to wait ours will be listed as a lesser cost.Thanks,Folger Tech TeamYour Support Ticket # 15146
Thanks, Belt has been ordered
(I ordered spare belts for my 1350mm setup from RobotDigg too)..........
It all depends upon how fast you want one delivered.But either way they are in stock.
Sorry. Most of the time they will sell any part. There are lots of items not on the site that they will sell you. Maybe they don't have enough spare.
It was worth a try.
yeah no worries Chris, i am guessing it will be a bit before they get the supply chain working correctly... I ordered 1 online but wasn't paying attention and it ships from over seas so 3 to 4 weeks out. Since i am traveling for work again, not really a problem since i wont be here to play with it LOL
I just emailed asking about a single belt update kit vs a full r2 update...or I'll order the belt from the link and get after it on my own....i've come to believe the single belt is a must have.
Here is the official reply from John in the facebook group.
