    Hello,

    My new head has arrived, very nice it is, having read through the build info, I have just one question, should I use some form of lubrication (copper slip) for all those dissimilar metals.

    Hi Drew,

    We don't use any form of lube or slip at the junctions, we have thousands of hours printing time like that. One thing you might try that can improve things a little is a tiny bit of thermal grease on the threads of the heatbreak where the meet the heatsink. Not necessary, but increases your cooling ability.
