Have got the 3D printer working again in a much lower capacity for now and finally finished off the chain tensioner/clip:



Here is the clip on the original tensioner.  Note that it is held in place by a 25mm bolt rather than the small plastic bits that often broke off:



I've also done the tensioner itself:



And here it is printed out with the spring/sprocket.  I need to give this a proper test to see how it holds out.  Anyone wanting to test one themselves, let me know:

Hi Ray,

It is working again though I'm not rushing back mass-printing just yet.  Will make you one tomorrow, can you PM me your address?

Thanks Dan, what a hero. Keeping another C5 alive. In turn I have offered another member a pair of rubber mounting blocks.
