Where do people recommend getting spare parts for the Prusa i3 MK3? The Prusa site has all the things of course, but says there may be a 2-week lead time. Is there a reputable source other than random eBay sellers?
For background, 2 or 3 weeks ago the print fan was failing because of a loose wire in the bundle. I replaced the wire and kept going. Now I’m getting an intermittent thermistor problem, which I think is also a loose wire. It should be fixable, but I want to have some spares on hand for when it’s not.
I want to get 2 each of the fans, thermistors, a new steel sheet (which is in stock a Prusa), and I guess nozzles. What am I overlooking?
This printer has been a champ. I’ve printed 275 face shield headbands, running it almost around the clock. When this is all over and it goes back to live in the shop, I want to replace these parts so it’s as good as new.
