Hi everyone,

I hope y'all are doing well during these times.

Mine printer is currently has a broken PINDA sensor, but the Prusa store has been sold out for a while and I want to continue making face shields for the community, where would you recommend buying 3rd party PINDAS or parts?

Thank you

The sales Blurb says 

V2 P.I.N.D.A Probe for Prusa 3D Printers

Fits:

  • MK2.5
  • MK2.5S
  • MK3
  • MK3S

    the Mk3 and Mk3S require 4 wire Pinda Probes, such as this one.

When I was putting together my 'crash kit' I ordered a spare hotend from Amazon, which was said to be the original E3D assembly as sold by Prusa.  I figured I could either use it to replace pieces of it or just slam-dunk the whole thing, depending on what exactly the issue happened to be at the time.  So far I have not had to use it.

I order a lot of parts from Amazon, Printed Solid, Matter Hackers, Partsbuild, FilamentOne, and Filastruder.
