Replacement wheels
« on: February 12, 2017, 12:53:39 PM »
Hello all,
I don't have access to a micrometer and would like to know if anyone has measured the stock wheels that come with the A5.  I would like to replace them with something much better as the stock ones are terrible.  Mine have flat spots and the bearings are iffy at best.  Does anyone have a link for better wheels that would fit on the A5?

Thanks in advance,
Phil
Just got my home switches installed!👍

My wheels are the stock plastic wheels. They are 7mm wide and 21.4mm in diameter as measured with a micrometer.

I'll second those wheels that Dan pointed out.  They are larger than the stock wheels, you'll have to adjust the bolt holes, but they are solid and true.  I had a wobble in my X-axis that no amount of tweaking would get rid of.  Replaced the white nylon wheels with those, and now it's perfectly straight.  As time and budget allow, I'll probably replace them in the Y-axis too.

I have the A3, 3 of the 4 wheels on my X are .866", the 4th wheel is 8.552".  And that is straight from banggood.
