    Don't know anywhere that would have the varipower bed...

    There are various places selling 300x200 pcb based beds (and glass surface) - a quick search found some on amazon and ebay among others. I don't think they're likely to be anywhere near as good as the original.

    If I was going to build a new bb today, I'd probably go for a clever3d bed, with a silicone heater, preferably mains powered using a solid state relay. Aliexpress is probably the easiest place to go looking for that (eg https://www.aliexpress.com/store/pr...-Printer-Heatbed-First/210086_2048426648.html). Alternatively you can also find any other size/voltage/power combination you want on aliexpress, including custom builds.

    I'd be interested in hearing about any better suggestions :)

    @Greg Holloway what would you recommend as a replacement for your design. Would whatever is coming for the toolchanger fit the original BB?

    We have two beds coming out in the next few months. One is a direct replacement and alternative to the bigbox bed and the other is a new high temperature version which runs on a/c.
