    Okay thanks fellas - I'll remove one extruder (I only ever use one anyway) and that'll make it a lot easier.
  3. Thanks, that may be the best way to fix it.

    The original print head on my Flashforge played up badly a while ago so I changed it for a new one. (long story)

    A mate of mine just linked me to this, from a Wanhao printer. It looks pretty much exactly the same as the Flashforge one - Do you think I could use it instead?...

    Sheet.
    I can easily live with one extruder no problems but there's still the problem of the unused one having the heater block loose on the shaft. How do I tighten it to stop it moving?

    I bought it based upon looking at a lot of videos and reviews on Youtube.
    Every one of them was good. I also looked at their forum, it also seemed pretty good.

    I haven't used my printer much since it was giving poor results.
