    Hey e3d,

    Love your products, I own 3 hot ends (2 x e3d-v6, 1 x e3d lite) and a titan extruder. All are wonderful!

    I've managed to damage the molex connector on cable that connects to the new thermistor cartridge. I see you offer the thermistor cartridge for sale, but not the connecting cable. Do everyone a favor and please start selling that cable. Otherwise I'm looking at spending alot of money to get molex crimpers.

    Thanks for all the wonderful products.

    Will

    I'm sure if you email/phone E3D support they will sort you out...

    If you are only doing a few you don't need the molex crimps, I have been surviving with a pair of flat nose pliers for years :)

    Go to FARNELL for instance, and forget about de crimp tool. A sharp plier plus some training will do the job easy, and you can buy thousands of contacts for the price of the tool... Works fine for me since ages...

    Thanks for all the pointers. Guess it's time I learned a new skill.

    Buying a thermistor cartridge comes with that cable, so I'd recommend just buying one and then you get a new cable plus a spare thermistor cartridge.
