STORE - Have anti-backlash nuts available in store

The a-b nuts are really a consumable item, much like the V-Wheels. I’d like to be able to purchase new ones once my current ones wear out.

My current one is sloppy, but usable since I’m not doing any detailed carving right now.

I second this. I live in Australia and rather than discovering wear and then ordering one and waiting for shipping, I’d like to have a replacement on hand.

Does anyone know where to buy them?

Ok found then. Nut and two collets 1/8 and 1/4. Kind of expensive $73. I know ouch.

However, it did come with a free trim router

Instead of spending 20 bucks for the Collett. I just put that to a spare router.

Carbide 3-D store has 15% off so……

This thread was about anti-backlash nuts? Not collet nuts. But if you need a collet nut, https://www.ereplacementparts.com/collet-nut-p-16253.html?gclid=Cj0KCQiAj4ecBhD3ARIsAM4Q_jFVYyVYqm60jAlLnzhuIgsZRk22HoSuj_GY0_WVEkun2k7BwRb9UPIaAu6oEALw_wcB

Note that there are two (three) different sorts of collets and nuts in question:

Note that Carbide 3D only offers 1/8" and 1/4" collets — if you want other sizes see:

Note that this thread was originally started about the availability, or request that Carbide 3D make available anti backlash nuts to purchase.

Confessing my ignorance I’d like to see a picture of an anti-backlash nut. I’m not sure what it is.

Since this was about the Z-Plus anti-backlash nut and lead nut (but some how got confused to collets), here’s a detailed post on the issue and replacement.

I did suggest to C3D support that these should be available in the store. The replacement is easy. If you can assemble your cnc, you can do this.
