Unfortunately the 0.4mm nozzle is no longer available, only 06.mm:

The 0.4mm Tungsten Nozzle from midwest is available on amazon to in the US.

Thanks for the link! I don't have an amazon account anymore and the nozzle is not delivered directly to europe by the manufacturer. I will wait until it is available again at https://www.3dmakerengineering.com/

Not an issue.  You can also order them directly: https://midwesttungsten.com/tungsten-3d-printer-m6-extruder-nozzle/

@charles-h13,

thanks for the link. I'll take a look at it and possibly order tungsten carbide 0.4mm and 0.6mm.

Per Guy’s response isn’t the Midwest Nozzle not Tungsten Carbide, but rather some other kind of tungsten alloy?

curious how the 3DM one holds up to Spool3D and Dyze

The Midwest nozzle is 100% tungsten. The thermal characteristics are a bit different between tungsten and tungsten carbide. Tungsten carbide has almost identical thermal characteristics when compared to brass. Tungsten is has a bit more thermal conductivity than both Tungsten carbide and brass., but not as much conductivity as copper. 3dmakerengineering(US based) and Spool3d(Canada based) both sell tungsten carbide nozzles.

👍100% correct. I am looking for a sintered tungsten carbide (hardmetal) and not for a metal alloy. There is a difference regarding hardness and thermal conductivity. 3dmakerengineering offers what I am looking for - 0.4mm unfortunately sold out 😐 .

Not quite :). I didn’t get adequate responses on this thread so I did some following up on my own:

Midwest’s nozzle is a Tungsten alloy, per their response to a message I sent:

“The alloy is our MT-185 heavy tungsten alloy which is 97% tungsten. It is not a tungsten carbide.

Regards,

Sean Murray
Midwest Tungsten Service”

Since it is not a carbide, which has the more desirable thermal characteristics, I went for the 3DM nozzle which is slightly cheaper in the US than the Spool3D one.
