MK4 Tensioner Mod

As Freeman explains on his blog- we couldn’t let the makerbot MK4 extruder go to waste, even though we want to have a stepper driven extruder. The thing 4824 by Taniwha will take care of adapting the stepper to a makerbot extruder, but Taniwha’s thing is designed for an MK5. We wanted the nifty adjustability of the MK5; enter the screw adjustable mod for an MK4.
