Can you reuse parts from the Anycubic Kossel for this extruder?

Hi,
Yes indeed... well, with some small caveats:
-You will need to source a skateboard bearing
-The OEM Allen bolt for for the lever fulcrum may not be quite long enough if you use the front plate - recommended, epecially with higher pressures
-I'm using the spring out of the Anycubic extruder but to increase the pressure even further you will need a short bolt, nut, and washer to act as an adjuster to drop in the spring well.
-Some spare Bowden tube for the filament pathway. With care I think there's enough extra length in the OEM tube to borrow a bit.
-A 12mm tact switch, if you want the filament sensing functionality
-The intended drive gear is not the original but the one I went for is dirt cheap in eBay...
...I'm afraid while the original gear should physically fit using it will mess up the allignment of the filament path - I've not tried it but I suspect filament loading would be a bit of a pain.

If you do get round to making your own I hope you like it.
Having used the Anycubic extruder (fine but limited), a Titan (very good but unreliable for me), and then a very basic extruder (awesome but ugly and didn't support flexi-filament) I had a list of features none of these individually had. Feel free to leave feedback and suggestions.

PS
This extruder uses a standard Bowden-Hotend connector, I can't remember if the Anycubic extruder used the same. At worst another cheap purchse on eBay
