No extrusion (yet)
First extruder-test with ABS is not successful, same for HDPE. For some reason the feed stops when halfway the heater.
After cooling down, disassembled the heater and checked alignment. Due to the melted plastic no idea how to re-align again. Maybe the temperature gauged is incorrect. Heating up to 254 degrees Celsius extrudes some ten measly millimeters with the feed coming to a halt.
