Our E3Dv4 hotends run an M6 Male threaded nozzle. You can find the drawings on e3d-online.com under downloads.

Would be cool to see if your stuff works with our hotend!
If anyone know's of any other 3D printers that take a male M6x1.0 thread and a 3/32" bore let me know so I can update the tags on this thing. Thanks!

Instructions

You can drill a 3/32" inch hole in a M6x1.0 male to 1/4"-20 male brass thread adapter (McMaster-Carr P/N 97437A600 found at http://www.mcmaster.com/#97437A600) like I've done in the photos. If the hole at the M6 end is a little off-center then you can use a larger drill bit to bevel the edges of the hole. Most likely the hole being off-center at the other end won't matter since there is still plenty of a path for the molten plasting to get the hole in the nozzle.
