Brass pipe broke in half - replacement?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Brass pipe broke in half - replacement?


After attempting to tighten the brass tube into the aluminum heating block to prevent the leakage you see, the brass piece broke in half. Is there a way I can get a replacement or do I have to purchase all 4 pieces for a new head? (aluminum heating block, nozzle, brass pipe, and PEEK)

ouch! I was so close to doing the same. Glad I stopped at the right moment.

I'd say you need a new brass pipe and the peek. The Teflon, heating block and nozzle will be ok.

Just heat the aluminum and use a wrench to get the brass out of the aluminum block

      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub.
