Extruder section

In the parts list for the extruder build it mentions a small piece of plumbers tape, now I take it that I have to supply that as is not in the kit? Yet at no point in the instructions does it mention using it, is it required now?

i removed all of this sealing tape... also on V1 nozzles.

Maybe thers a product that can sustain more heat.

because it tends to degrade under high temperature into a hard brittle substance that can clog your nozzle..

i just tighten the PEEK and Nozzle realy hard. by hand.. else you could break it.

also putting som ABS trough the system will close some gaps in a dirty way..

but i dont recomend this.
