    I was messing with the MakerGear Mosaic, swapped out the print head (black ABS) to replace the cracked blue head, but the nozzle size is for thicker filament, not a huge deal, but the filament doesn't get grabbed by the extruder stepper, so no filament gets extruded. The head also seems to fit pretty loosely in the gap for it, so it wiggles a bit, not sure if this is related to the different nozzle size or not.
    And the bearing that the filament rolls against was catching, so i had to file down the gap here it sits, or it wouldn't spin at all. It was after this that I discovered the hole size was for the thicker filament so it wasnt' going to feed anyways.
    Maybe if we can get one printed in the correct size by tomorrow we could get this one in working order again.
    I also put a longer Z-axis screw in to set the correct z-axis stop.
