Re: Major issue with e3d head upgrade

thanks for all the replies. I will make sure there is no play. I also opened up the through hole another 10 thousandths hoping that this will help. either opening up the hole will help or totally trash the head. either way its a try.

Re: Main board shot on rostock max what to do?

my main question is why did the extruder motor just randomly start getting hot enough to melt the plastic it is feeding in after constant use since last January.
