If someone gets the resistor shaved to fit in there, i'll bring in the special

Don't glue it in place with epoxy, or you'll have to drill it out when it burns out again. It should be a tight enough fit to hold in place by itself, no? I would expect regular thermal paste to conducts heat better than the epoxy anyway...


PS: the replacement resistor that Lulzbot sells is only $3.50, and I would expect that one to fit the hole like a glove. They seem to be out of stock right now though...
