I have a BNEM that size and I’ve also thought about using a ball and soldering iron to heat it & ‘iron’ out the hole.
    Do the bearings not fit in the hole then? They are pretty exact tolerances on those holes so the bearing fits in, but does not slide all the way through.

    I understand how it works & that the holes are hemispherical, the printed holes have a little bit of error where the filament bridges the top of the hemisphere even at a .12 layer hgt specíd in the instructions. Itís probably my fault for checking fit with 5/32 balls that I had on hand instead the of 3.5mm specified.

    Those look a little rough. What nozzle size are you using.

    0.4mm E3D nozzle, 0.12 layer height, 0.44 extrusion width, 15% infill, 3 perimeters maybe I should slow the print speed down and give it more time to cool. Overall it looks pretty good and the parts fit.

    Spell check doesn't work in Chrome, so if something is spelled wrong, it's just a typo that I missed.

    I see the chain yanking emoji, so I assume you are joking around.

    I will say this though. As far as I am concerned this project is about at a close, except for very minor tweaks. Or if someone asks me for a new feed die or something.

    in the time i have been here i have 5 working models (yea i know overkill) but if you do a complete build just do it from the latest version and only work from that version and you will have success

    no worries

    Oh man I can relate to this. I also have a complete unit sitting here with no motor because I stole it to put it on my Mongo feeder. So should I buy another motor? do I really need 4 feeders? Probably not. lol

    Good day!! First of all thank you for putting this all together!!! This is amazing work!!! I'm taking a stab at printing a bullet feeder for my hornady press and I'm running the parts generator. Does it take a while to do? I selected all the parts I want and did a new folder location and the bar at the bottom just keeps going and I'm waiting for the beep like the directions say but haven't heard anything yet and its still going. Does it take a while? Thank you!!!



    EDIT: Never Mind I figured it out!!!

    What's your second choice motor

    TylerR, I have brass and bullet collators for my press and I'm using the recommended motors ETZGMP38 on both. My question is I'm wanting to build another collator for my new LEE ACP Press but didn't want to drop the cash for another ETZGMP38 motor. Out of the 4 motors what is your recommended 2nd, 3rd then 4th motors?

    Also the ETZGMP38 is cheaper at ZORO with free shipping....

    I would give the 634JS motor a try. It is linked in the manual.

    I'm using cheap JGY371 (from AliExpress) in both bullet and case feeder with no issues so far.

    So getting ready to order the electronics for my feeder and wanted another set of eyes on my shopping list. Here are the links to what I'm ordering. Your opinion is welcome. I am how ever sticking with the JGY motor.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...KUI8ZCJ7&psc=1
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...BUHD1UD8&psc=1

    If you think I should go with something else a link would be appreciated.

    Hi Portland,
    I would suggest using a Normally Closed proximity switch because you want the circuit closed until the switch is made, which opens the circuit and thereby stops the motor. The one you show is Normally Open.
