Source for Reasonably-Priced Nozzles

Postby Julia Truchsess » Fri Oct 05, 2018 4:33 pm

Looking for a U.S. source for decent-quality N2-compatible brass nozzles at a rational price. I would be happy to patronize Raise3D or its resellers, but I'm not going to pay $20 for a 30-cent nozzle. I don't need stainless or ruby or hardened or anything special, just a nice brass nozzle that fits and prints properly. There are many on Amazon but it's hard to find confirmed compatibility with the N2 hot end.

I was shocked to see the cost of the plain brass nozzles myself. It's the same cost issue for the glass for the print bed.
Raise3D needs to rethink it's margin strategy on parts like this before some one reverse engineers the nozzles and have them turned in the USA for about 3-5 bucks each in small run quantities. You Tube "Swiss Machine" or "citizen swiss machines" (yeh the same Citizen that makes watches) to see how small items are turned on state of the art CNC Swiss lathes.

I guess I'll just have to buy some from various sources and test them, thanks.

I have a few bags of these - they've worked fine. They are shorter than the Raise nozzles, but otherwise they fit/work fine.

Sorry, went on travel and forgot all about this. The ones mentioned above will work, I've done it early on. If you want to keep it closer to the R3D nozzle, look for the MK8 style nozzles with M6 thread. Just make sure the inside of the nozzle is not bored out for the teflon tube liner. Some do and some don't.
