First all-metal J-Head from

(ThantiK) #2

Wow… to say I’m excited about this is an understatement. The legit, official J-head from reifsnyderb was my first true hot end, and that thing was a damn workhorse for 3-4 years with not so much as a single hiccup out of the thing. I think it was a v4B that I had. For a while there he wasn’t going to continue making hot ends because of all of the imposters from China. I am sooo happy to see he is still around and doing these. Can’t wait to get one and try it out.

@ThantiK all my Deltas are equipped with original MKV, MK8 & MK10 atm and I never had a single issue with them…as you said they are real workhorses. I ordered a MK12 yesterday and looking forward to print again with more exotic and abrasive filaments. Currently I only use PETG, PLA & Green-TEC. Let’s see if the all-metal one is equally reliable like it’s predecessors!

@ThantiK I think he sold the website.

@Shai_Schechter Maybe? I’m not sure. I wonder if it’s still Brian that’s making the hot ends anyways.

Ahh, here’s the deal: “In 2018 the business was split from the manufacturing company and Hotends LLC founded by Nicholas Stratton was formed to assume ownership of Hotends LLC continues along the same mission to provide a quality ecommerce experience, set industry standards and create content to support the community.” – So it looks like they’re still legit, they just split the manufacturing side off.

@ThantiK yes, that’s what Nicholas also told me via mail. Brian is still manufacturing the hotends.

It looks like they are ONLY making this metal version now. Ive always used J-heads since version 2.

I wish them well. I don’t use groove mounted hot ends, I can’t tell a clear way to adapt any of this design to my machines.
