This version is less prone to cracking. Instead of a washer and nut, there is an M6 tapped hole in a piece of aluminum. But best of all, two can be bolted together to form a dual head extruder. Yes, you can have one or two of the same extruder! I'm working on a mount for this right now.
See my YouTube videos of previous versions for theory of operation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMjVrmLJvIU) and how quickly the filament can be changed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_isuzpvjBc)

A kit would be nice and certainly an improvement. I've been happily using the extruder I've designed for a few months. I don't know when the MK5 extruder stuff is coming out, but when it does it will probably include the improvements I've made as well as a whole lot more.
What a great design! When can I buy a 'kit' of the plexiglas pieces to build one up using parts from a torn down mk4 extruder? I've tried 3 builds to get consistant extruding from 2 different plastruder mk4s with no luck. Sure would like to try your version out.
