    Oct 8, 2019 8:44 AM - Ray Fox: R2: I think there is a problem with the y limit switch. When try to home, it grinds and makes an awful noise.
    Oct 8, 2019 8:46 AM - Ray Fox: Where can I get a limit switch for the R2. Partsbuilt does not not have them (that I can find.) Is it generic that I can get from Amazon. Would you recommend I also get the step motor?

    Oct 10, 2019 at 7:39 AM - mark tomlinson: You can get them from amazon
    Oct 10, 2019 at 7:40 AM - mark tomlinson: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EHH8BFW
    Oct 10, 2019 at 7:41 AM - mark tomlinson: The stepper motors are generic too. You can measure the physical size to match that and then look for one with 200 steps/rev
    Oct 10, 2019 at 7:43 AM - mark tomlinson: Actually the limit switch for the R2 is different. The one I posted is for the R1 series. The R2 one is customized and uses an optical sensor. You can probably find something close enough if you are willing to do some work to convert it, but the exact one needs to come from PartsBuilt. Let them know you need it and they can tell you when they can restock it.
    Oct 10, 2019 at 9:23 AM - mark tomlinson: Something like this: https://smile.amazon.com/OctagonStar-Endstop-Mechanical-Switch-Printer/dp/B01I1E84SG
    Oct 10, 2019 at 9:23 AM - mark tomlinson: or this
    Oct 10, 2019 at 9:23 AM - mark tomlinson: https://smile.amazon.com/Printer-Accessories-FYSETC-Mechanical-Endstops/dp/B07DWQZCB
    Oct 10, 2019 at 9:24 AM - mark tomlinson: could be made to work, but they are not exactly the same size/dimensions

    Oct 31, 2019 at 5:19 PM - Geof: Typically they arnt, unless the super smart (not) system sees it as spam or the such. Will look
    Oct 31, 2019 at 5:20 PM - Geof: Probably the link. Idk why it was flagged but I approved it
