I probably just assumed it because it can get up to 300C, whereas every other PTFE-lined hotend I've come across typically maxes out at 250C before the PTFE degrades.

I don't recall ever seeing that part on the site and, I believe they were always made with a tube and max temp is 300C. I have never had an issue with gummed up barrel.

Re: Installing an E3D V6 today, what do I need to know?

Hey Helifrek How did the hot end upgrade turn out? You mentioned that you had to print a mount. Would you mind posting the file you used? Maybe a couple pictures would be helpful. I been haveing some issues printing with PETG and I think the V4 hot end is just not up to the job. No, print PETG all ...
