Very happy to have this hercules extruder  sitting on my desk.  Shout out to Max Steiner for time on his machine.

Nothing fit correctly! I had to file down just about every surface, but it’s very close. I need to add wiggle room for all of the holes.

Here it is installed.

It’s quite heavy, and puts significant torque on the x-carriage.

Thanks Lou! Thank you for the idea!

I think the weight of the stepper is going to be a problem. Perhaps a smaller nema17.

Also balance is an issue, it might be better if the heaver stepper motor is on top of the x-carriage.
