This mount plate is designed for most commonly used 12mm diameter hot end groove mounts. It works with J-Heads, Makergear hot ends and other designs with the same mounting option.
Cold end mounting slots will work with Wade type extruders and many other extruder designs. Please, consult with drawing to see if this part is compatible with your extruder design.

Thickness around mounting area is reduced to 4.4mm maximum for compatibility with european made J-Heads equipped with 4.5mm wide grooves.

Works as a heat sink!

Mounting hardware depends on the particular extruder design - #6-32, #8-32, M4 or M5. Maximum bolt/screw size is M5.



Please see supplied PDF drawing for design details.

Part suppose to be milled out of 3/16" thickness 6061-T6 aluminum alloy sheet.

As Chris0611 says below, what stops it sliding out. Thanks

Hey guys, plate, when installed on Wade's extruder, is clamped against extruder body with screws and that fixes hotend in place.

I would like to see a video, how to, etc.. If you have one tank you

I actually don't even understand how this works. How do you 'mount' it? Eg. prevent it from just sliding forward? Are there any bolts to lock the hotend in place? Or is it only a push fit?
