If i move the arcol hot end a little bit or the wade's extruder, then the filament feed hole are aligning.

Some more images of the issue.

If i insert the filament before tightening the screws,able to feed the filament...but if have to change the filament..i can't loosen the screws easily while the printer is completely assembled...

Any to solve this issue...Please..


  1. I'm currently having the same issue. I'm thinking the extra mounting disk that came with the hot end is supposed to help but I'm not really sure how...
