    Replacement PFTE Source, Specs?

    Hi All,

    Has been a while! I finally burned the teflon insert in my hotend out, printing Nylon (badly).

    While it's not urgent because I'm about to fit my Diamond nozzle, does anyone have a link to replacement tubing that will fit in the stock hotend?

    If not, the specs? All I have is a burnt mess, so I can't really figure out what goes in there...

    Thanks!

    Clayton

    So, can I use just a piece from the filament guide line? Is that PFTE?

    Thanks!

    That's PFTE but the wrong diameter.

    You'd need this one I think.

    I tried that product (not teflon) from Amazon and found it pretty difficult to insert it in the heat break. The OD is slightly to big. I did manage to get it installed but went ahead and ordered this from ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/221308619542

    I found the teflon product showed must less resistance, and easier to install. I actually cut a piece longer than needed ( you need 25mm) and put a piece of filament inside then chucked it in my cordless drill. A little bit of light oil and spinning it slow it went right in to the bottom. I then just trimmed it off slightly longer than the end of the heat break.

    You're right, amazon's not PFTE but PFA, my bad!

    THIS would be the correct amazon link:
