    I'm going to get a thermal fuse and clip it to the bottom 2 fins, but I can't get a decent temp measurement with an IR thermometer or a k-type thermocouple in order to get the proper fuse. Can anyone else measure it?

    Putting the fuse on the bottom 2 fins handles both likely situations: the nozzle gets stuck heating (has already happened) and the heat travels up and trips the fuse, or, the fan stops (very likely) and the fins heat up and do the same.

    I'm assuming that if the fan does stop, the heat would indeed be enough to melt the Wades extruder mount, but I have not tested that yet.
