So the belts listed on the BOM for Herculien will not be shipping till

So the belts listed on the BOM for Herculien will not be shipping till march 22nd I found a slightly shorter 226mm belt on eBay but I’m not sure if it would be better to go slightly longer or slightly shorter. Or @Eclsnowman or others have an alternate source?

I got all my belts from http://robotdigg.com I believe you can move the motors mount a bit to make up for the difference.

Is my BOM from robotdigg or misumi? Its been a while and I am out.

@Eclsnowman http://robotdigg.com

I I would wait then. You need the steppers anyways.

I would love to wait but I already have everything except heated bed insert and belts :(. I guess if heated bed is delayed a while I can just work on my Kossel

You can try shorter, but it might be too short, I will have to check. Also confirm the eBay seller is not China based too.

Bad experience with Chinese belts?

No, but same Asian new year issue as everyone over there.

Here is cheaper than SDPSI for the closed belts: http://www.robotdigg.com/product/282/228mm-or-232mm-length,-6mm-width,-Closed-loop,-GT2-belt adding it to the BOM now.

i put in an order since they gave me 20 credit
