To provide a Hot End design for people who have access to a machine shop but have little machining experience

While I was building my RepRap, I had somewhat of a hard time with the hotend & thermal barriar. Basicly I saw two groups, hotends that people could build whi had basic levels of tools, and professional hot ends that hou needed to buy. While option two was glamorous, I didnt want to spend money on something I could make myself. I also wanted to make something a but mroe accurate than option one.

My design is based off of the Wildseyed Hotend. It can use either NiChrome wire or a heater block.
