    I admit I shall have to get a 32 bit board installed at some point even though it has been working steadily printing for days without a glitch. I'm starting to wonder what's the matter, I usually have some kind of screw up at least once in a while. That new fan made all the difference for my old heat creep problem.

      I remember the discussion about your heat creep. Good to hear the fan is working out. The 32-bit board, once upgraded with Marlin 2.x would definitely give you the M600 command.

        Good news folks: I just checked the Micro Swiss heater block and, 🤩, there is no oozing filament on the top or the bottom.

          Bad news. More leaking. This time, when I went to tighten everything up, I stripped the grub screw that holds the heat break into the heat sink. I've kept the µSwiss extruder but I had to reinstall the original Creality nozzle assembly. It's working but, of course, it's not all-metal.

          I saw online a mod to install an E3D Revo Micro on Ender 5 printers. I may well look into that. Meantime, I almost can't wait for the Prusa MK3S+ to get shipped and arrive.

          3D printers can sure be a thorn in your backside. I don't mind tinkering with stuff but I also want it to work when I need it. I was thinking about buying a Swiss extruder when I decided to convert my Ender 3 v2 to a direct drive, but I went with the Creality one instead. Partly because it was half the price. I think the Swiss extruder & hotend have been a thorn in your side since you purchased it. About the time you get it all figured out the Prusa MK3S+ will arrive. Got tentative shipping date?

            It costs more but, if you really wanted to upgrade your hotend, I would look seriously at the E3D Revo. It's pretty advanced, and it has quickly interchangeable nozzles.

              Right now about the only thing I would do to is is install an all metal hotend. I had the Slice Engineering on on my E3V2 when it had the boden tube. Can't decide if I want to buy a new one or take the one out of the boden setup.

                The Revo is all metal.
