    Razor, what is actually going on with the wire change in the hot end? I want to avoid this having no crimp tools.

    You mean which wires are what?
    You could weld those wires and use some shrink tubing

    Ill proof if its going to work without having to recrimp everything on the White one at weekend... Ill let you know

    Thanks. Yes, I was wondering what the before and after circuit diagram look like. I remember you saying something about this liberating a fan (?). I'd prefer to make changes on the other end of the wire if possible.

    I know what you mean, i dont know what that small Board does, but I can measure which wire goes where, so u could maybe Just change the connector at the end... But Thermostat has to go if you want to control the temperature of L/R hotend individually,

    Liberating a Fan? What do you mean by that?

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Are u doing the conversion?

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Next logical step is going to be the heatbed

    I have ordered one 160x160 12v 120W,
    Will Power it with Dell optiplex external Power supply 12v 18A, Plus one external relay

    I'm very tempted to do the conversion, yes. I want to go on a minimal route.

    Fans is probably my poor recollection of what you said earlier. I just never understood the rewiring in the hotend.

    When I do these things I don't veer from the original on hardware. Somewhere down the line I want to be sure and be compatible with a like configuration. Remembering to tweak a line of code that could potentially drive my printer to self destruction is not my way of hacking. I do these things very methodically.

    So having said that, yes, what is being changed in the wiring that involves the hotend? I forgot about the board. I'll have to look at that again.

    Yes it Was my reference too

    Interesting. Yes, both heating elements are tied together on this end, the hot end I mean. Do those two pins connected to the other side of the heater elements not go back to the motherboard as separate lines?

    I cant Tell, i was eager to get IT printing so it was kinda logical,
    As i said i learn on the fly

    Ill Do some Research this weekend, i wanted to Figure out how does the stock ABL work...

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Should be usable with some tweaking... One led as receiver other as Signal... With few lines of arduino Code should be doable

    - - - - - - - - - -

    https://www.instructables.com/id/Sim...-with-Arduino/ will Look into that as well

    Here is the hotend wired up
    And right hotend heating but it was heating the left too

    Ill try to make the second cube build as painless as it can be

    Is it simply reading the heat that bleeds over from the other side?

    No when Thermostat Was removed and heaters wired directly its now showing the actual temperature... For example at 240c left, approx 110c right...
