J-Head™ Bowden Aglet™ Installation Video #
Aglet™ Kit Includes: #
A. 1x PTFE Bowden Tube
B. 2x Aglet™
C. 2x Aglet™ Retainers
D. 1x Aglet™ Installation Tool
Before Installation – Cut your PTFE Tube to the length required
1. Slide the Aglet™ Retainer onto the PTFE bowden tube and insert Aglet™ Installation Tool
2. Thread the Aglet™ onto the PTFE bowden tube.
3. Bring the Aglet™ retainer down over the Aglet™ and remove the Aglet™ Installation Tool then repeat for other end of your bowden tube.
*Tip – you can use a cordless drill to easily grip the Aglet™ to thread it up or down.
*Tip – you only need enough threads to make your calibration adjustment – there is no need to thread as long as you see in these images
Grab the PTFE tubing and see if there is any play up and down.
In the event that there is play, unscrew the Aglet™ retainer and thread the aglet further up the PTFE and test again.
You are trying for zero backlash in Z but still allowing for a friction free rotation of the bowden tube / aglet™ while the aglet™ retainer keeps everything contained.
*Warning – If the Aglet™ is not calibrated correctly the PTFE bowden tube will not be held securely to the hotend’s core tube.
– See video above.
🎉 You have successfully completed assembly and calibration of your new Aglet™ bowden tube… Enjoy! and happy printing! 🎉
