    I got delivery today of the point 5 brass nozzles I’d ordered, I was thinking of switching one of my printers over to the .5 nozzle and keeping the other with the .4, it will be nice and handy to see side by side what the differences between the two are.

    I ordered a set of 5 in a pack (€6.90) and the eejits sent me a 50 pack instead, I don’t reckon I’ll use them all no matter how careless I can get, now to find something I want to make two of...

    I have now tried out the new point 5 nozzle size on several prints and so far and can say there is no discernible quality difference between the .4 and .5 nozzles, O’ it does print faster and I’m sure that will interest @Nifty a lot... :D

    Go big or go home! ;)

    I settled on the .6mm nozzle for all my printing.
