Heatbreak

Welp my clone arrived today, started to unpack and checked the heatbreak and unfortunately it's the loosey goosey one where the PTFE goes all the way down.

Just replace it.  Not worth your time unless you print just PLA.

Yeah I still have one from the original Prusa Mini, so that's at least a little bit better than this one. I'll look for a Bondtech clone or a real Bondtech one later. Hotend also does not look that good as you said.

Heat Break

Weird. Mine came with a new style heatbreak that looks like the bondtech. Where did you buy your clone?  I got mine from the official FYSETC AliExpress store.

Store

I didn't get it from the official store so that might be why. May be good to know for others.

Impressions

Well after fixing a clogging issue with the PTFE coupler on the hotend side I have it running pretty much stock with only the original Minda sensor from my Original Mini and the original heat break. It's printing beautifully even though I probably shorted the hotend fan (waiting for a replacement), it runs at half speed now I'm guessing. Bearings are pretty shite and loud. Heatbed is a little slower to warm up.

Pretty happy with it and it's not going to be long until it's earned itself back printing rockets 🙂🚀

PTFE coupler

I use a PTFE coupler also to ease unloading.  I hate the current setup.

PTFE coupler

Push fittings

These ones, they ruin the PTFE as well.

Couplers

I misunderstood.  I use a coupler to track two pieces of PFTE.
