Re: MINTEMP triggered

Replace the thermistor cartridge. It has extremely fine wires and they've broken.

Re: Perfectly flat borosilicate

It uses the same "paper scrape" technique that the TrueLevel does -- you do this step after the corners are level. My firmware uses the LCD panel (I have a ton of Viki1's...).

Re: Detachable Spool Holder

It's OK here. I like it -- I have that issue, two M2s are a bit snuggly on 4ft shelving.
