The goal this time was getting it back to working with the minimum effort possible. So instead of removing the hot end and having to work with components while they're hot I'm just going to make a patch job.
5-in-1 painters tool, a pencil, and some ceramic insulation from Makerbot.
|Removin' the print head... it's so easy to do! Or I've just done it a lot|
|Fortunately the ceramic tape takes pencil really well.|
This is clearly not a long term solution and so I'm going to keep the rest of the insulation around against the day that I have to take the whole thing apart and do it right next time. But for now I'm gonna call this good so I can get back to printing chess sets.
