8 way molex "KK" connector

  • Back in December, my wife purchased a smart effector for me (from filastruder.) As I was waiting for a zesty nimble to be shipped and arrive, I've only had the chance to install it this week. However, I'm unable to find the "8-way white Molex KK" connector in the package.

    For now, I've used a couple of 4 pin dupont connectors, but I'd really prefer to use the proper connector (that won't be plugged in backwards by mistake.)

    I did some quick searches on Amazon and eBay, but I can't seem to find any 8-way Molex KK's. (I also don't want to spend more than the cost of the entire smart effector to just replace a single missing connector.)

    I've sent a contact message to filastruder, but I don't see that connector available (without another smart effector) on their website, so I'm not sure what (if anything) they'll be able to do.

    Can anyone offer a suggestion?

    Perhaps as a last resort... My main deterrent is that they all seem to ship from China...

    Delivery: Estimated between Mon. Mar. 16 and 1 day before Pigs Fly.

    It looks like I might be able to get the shells from digi-key, but there's a comment on the duet wiki that suggests that I might also need to buy different pins (because the ones that Duet3D uses ("Wurth Electronics") might not work with other shells.) So, I suppose there are some options.

    Ideally, filastruder might have a couple extras floating around and they can toss one in an envelope.

  • ...and filastruder comes to the rescue again!

    "No problem, we’ll send one out. Where should it ship to?"

    I don't think there are many other companies out there that are so helpful.
