    Hi all,

    I printed the Top Spool Holder recommended in the tagged replacements/upgrades thread:
    http://community.robo3d.com/index.php?threads/robo3d-replacements-and-upgrades-thread.6677/
    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:232391#files

    I've been using it for a while without bearings, but now I finally got the ones I ordered and so I wanted to assemble the whole thing. But I have some concerns regarding the piece that fits into the filament spools (images below).
    1. Won't this piece make friction against the spool holder itself? Should the outside of it be lubricated somehow?
    2. Won't his piece make friction against the rod going through it? Should I lubricate it somehow?
    Thanks in advance

    Hopefully someone can comment -- @Kaan has not been around since Jan. 2016 but others probably implemented that same holder.

    I personally never wanted to use a holder that put the spool up over the bed (at least not one like that or many of the others I saw that mounted to the printer itself). Accidents do happen and a spool falling on the bed would be no fun.
