    Greetings,

    I have some trouble with the extruder stepper on my printer, it has begun behaving oddly.
    It looks like its being asked to step, but it just ends up "shaking" pinion gear.


    The video here shows part of a 100mm extrusion,

    Does anyone know how i can fix this?

    Brilliant Mark! :) I had an old motor driver lying around from a kick starter Robo and now it works.

    Thank you for taking time to help me solve the problem.
