Little sore after surgery

John, finally got to work on me last night. Hot-end removed after some fussing with the nut. It was getting caught on all the old melted plastic. The PTFE barrel was cracked and snapped right in half when he tried to unscrew it from the nozzle. His face was priceless...

After that he spent several hours online looking for a replacement barrel and is waiting for a quote back from They don't sell the hot-end pieces individually but they plan on being able to soon and they told him they would get back on Wednesday morning.

John spent from 9pm to 1:30am working on re-routing all my electronics and configuring the Gen 6 board to a better position. It's on my left side now. It feels quite nice there too! After all was said-and-done, the new set up looks and feels very good. I guess a broken clock is still right twice a day.
