    Just got a used, early version R1 at an estate sale. No chance to test it or get much information about it.

    While I attempt to get up to speed on this perhaps someone can help.

    Found the part in the attached pictures floating free, once I got it home. Any idea what it is?

    yeah that's a filament cleaner/oiler. You put it on top of the extruder where the filament goes in and just pass the filament through it. The sponge will "clean" dust and such off the filament, but if you also put a few drops of pure canola oil on the sponge it will lube PLA filament and help with flow.

    Thanks. Guess that would be called out in one of the documents that I have yet to read. Guess I need to get to that.
