UM2 Heater Blocks

Post by shurik » October 11th, 2019, 6:15 am

Hi there,
Asked this on UM forum but received no replies. Trying my luck here.

My UM2 is soon going to turn 6 years old and it is unbelievable machine.
Olsson block was installed once it got released, way, way back. It's parts show the age and wear and tear, so I am thinking of replacing/upgrading it.
There are some options on 3dsolex site and an advise would be appreciated.
Should I go for a new original Olsson block? Or to buy Matchless one? What benefit if any would it do?
Maybe, there other quality nozzle/PTFE suppliers out there? After all, brass nozzles and Teflon insulators from 3dsolex do not last as long as I would wish them to be.
And if asking - what fan shroud would you recommend to replace the original one?
Many ways to go - would appreciate your opinions.

Good question....I wondered about upgrades to my UM2+ With so many out there, I was curious if someone offered some hot end upgrades or even a board upgrade to utilize better drivers (i.e. no Salmon Skin effect)
