I currently have a Replicator 2 and a couple of clones. I'm a fairly experienced 3DP user and builder but one issue that I have over and over again is the very brittle screw type thermowell assemblies that get damaged whenever you try to replace a nozzle or repair your hot end.
I'm wondering why I don't see more of the quick connect type thermocouple assemblies, like this K-type male.
It would be a great help on 3D Printers allowing easy disconnect of screw type thermowells without damaging them. Is there a reason that these are not being used?
I was hoping someone with experience with these could tell me if they are worth trying out on some of my builds without risking some kind of dangerous situation.
