This head works nice. It heats fast and feels solid. I've put over a roll of ABS through it now and it is doing great. Well worth the money.

First let me start by saying the support Brad provides is top notch! I bought the MendelMax 1.5 kit with this head. I got it all built and was so excited to use it. That soon turned to frustration when half way into printing a calibration cube my extruder clogged. First I blamed the filament and finally after playing with it for hours I bit the bullet and pulled my newly installed head and cleaned it. (if you have ever had to do this you know what a pain it is). I was amazed when I found a ton of brass shavings. This is from the machining process of the brass hot end. The way it was packaged led me to think the head way ready to go. This was not a fluke as a friend purchased the same kit with this same head and his was full of shavings as well. Thankfully I told him to check it before he tried to use it. All and all the head is great. Just this little issue caused me at least 6 hours of down time trying to make it work correctly and finally cleaning the head.

have about 20 meters of black and 10 of natural PLA through it and not a single hitch. heats up quickly, and achieves rock-steady temps. quick delivery as well. couldn't be happier with this purchase.
