    Cool! Will the socks fit onto both hotends on a Chimera or will that be too tight?

    Hi, will these fit a hot end with a P100?

    I assume yes and maybe only for these because all blocks sold today are like the old PT100 block.
    Actually the PT100 block is now the default one because all other temp sensors have the format the PT100 block had.

    I have a Lite6 hotend (from around when it was first released). And I too would like to use the socks, because sometimes my hotend has a cold nose :). What do I need to buy? Just a pack of 3 socks will not work, since the heater block should be a recent one. Can I use the Block & Sock V6 upgrade kit for my Lite6? Or do I just need to buy a v6 hotend Full kit?

    Lite6 and v6 use the same heater block.

    PT100 blocks are the same as cartridge style heater blocks.
