    There is also a fan mount, but can't find it at the moment.....I used an old fan from a server power supply so it is about 2 or 3 times as deep as standard fan. When printing with PLA a cooling fan makes a huge difference in print quality.
    In terms of speed and quality, I think I've taken this Sunhokey as far as can without a upgrade to the extruder. The one listed here is no longer available so I'm trying to find a replacement. Phil do you have another one to recommend? or anyone else for that matter.

    The one I bought had a bonus Volcano, but I never used it. I also bought the stainless steel heatbreak that is on that page (little lower down). I had to use a dremel on it to ensure it was smooth....which is the case for most Chinese heatbreaks (QA is not the best).

    Default Sunhokey Acrylic Reprap Prusa i3 DIY Kit on sale $234

    Thanks Phil. I found one, but didn't check out yet. I'll switch to this one. I need to check out quickly before I spend too much. That looks like a great AliExpress store. Very little negative feedback. I managed to load up $100+ of misc CNC build parts. I've been about 50/50 on aliexpress vedors.

    You just hit on a possible next build....I am eyeing the MPCNC (mostly printed CNC)....Looks like a fun build.
    Dunno if the wife can put up with another "project" though.....
