-=( Aluhotend status update )=-

Status update for the Aluhotend:

currently it is at version 5B and there is plenty of stock of all components for both 3mm and 1.75mm

there have been no reported problems with this version so far

it is currently being sold on ebay in the configurations:

- single pack hotend only
- dual pack hotend only
- single pack kit
- dual pack kit
- single pack prewired
- dual pack prewired

available nozzle sizes 0.3mm , 0.4mm and 0.5mm

future plans:

- so far it has been suggested that the 2.5mm hole could actaully be tapped with and M3 thread
- possibly reducing the length of the stainless thermal barrier and the threaded section of the heatsink
- possible heater block and nozzle in one combination
