    First share... ever wonder how the extruder nozzle is made?

    If you leave 0.92" tubing beyond the nut, it will bottom out as shown.
    This is an adjustment I make on a lot of cartridges.
    It keeps from forming a large head between the tube and the narrow section of the nozzle that cannot be retracted.
    This leads to stripped plastic in the feeding cogs...
    Which leads to frustration and another cartridge rebuild.

    Hey! At least someone else is selling them

    We should keep track of the "On Order" availability list and stock date to keep track of their stock history.
    Do we have database capabilities here?

    Captured today in a Microsoft XPS format (default Windows printer). Attachment separates ABS from PLA.

    Hatchbox filament: eBay ~$28 Walmart ~$23 - 1Kg. PLA, Beige; Seller, Low Baller for both. Also Amazon (shop!)

    Made in China.
    No date code that I could see.
    Somewhat brittle.
    3D Prints "crackle" when you give them a little squeeze.
    Not a very clean wind. Lots of kinks.

    When purging, it clicks like crazy but prints fine (used a known good feeder/nozzle setup)
    The feeder bites into the material similar to the original.
    Feeder works with comparable resistance.

    Overall, I can only give it a 3 out of 5 for desired quality.

    This is what I have been using and it works great for me in both PLA and ABS. And it's only $15!

    We don't have microcenters here. Does it act much the same as the 3D Systems material? The tan stuff really is a lot more brittle. PLA should be PLA right?
