failing extruder
July 26, 2011 04:32PM

so i have a techzone kit and i have rebuilt it 3 times to get it to work once and it just keeps breaking in the stupidest ways. i see on ebay there is only one pre built hot end/ extruder. does anyone know of any others i could mount onto the wade style extruder? attached is a picture explaining how i feel in regards to the ever failing hot end. Thank you for reading this

I've replaced a couple of Techzone Wade's with a Greg's Hinged Extruder and Wildseyed Simple Hot End for fellow reprappers. PM me if you want pricing and availability. I can provide references too.

I'm still running Techzone's wooden extruder, but have long since replaced the hot end with MakerGear's.

I did have to modify the TechZone assembly quite a bit in order to make it compatible with MakerGear - if you have the option of printing a new extruder, Greg's Wade should be more compatible.

Also, I understand that CdnReprap sells a well constructed hot end.
