Upgrading to the hotbed

I was under the assumption that you were able to make another $35.00 pledge. This is not true, and has been taken off.
After you pledge for the kit you want, return to the Eventorbots project page. You then will have to click on the blue "manage your pledge" button under the "days to go". From there you should be able to add the $35.00 for the upgrade.

      Thanks for the video update of hot head and info on geared stepper motor. I bought one off ebay and arrived today. The gear was quite hard to take off, had experienced madhinist custom make a gear puller and it wasn't enough to get it off alone. Had to grind off a quarter of the gear (up to shaft) then use puller and it came off like a dream! :). I then filed a flat portion onto shaft for the new mk7 gear to sit and set screw ro righten onto like you mentioned in video. Thanks Duy!

      Duy,
      Can you please specify the 'Geared stepper motor' specs that is included in the MK7/Geared stepper motor pledge? Brand and model would be most helpful as I am looking into possible 'other' filament options. Thanks very much in advance, I am already a backer but just planning ahead! ;)
