E3D nozzles can be bought for cheap from ebay and the like, but officially you are looking at £5 each. What is their “Fun Pack” selection box like? Only one way to find out, I purchased to see for myself!
The idea is you get 6 selected sizes, from the finest (0.25mm!) up to a huge 0.08mm, plus a spanner sized correctly for E3D nozzles (handy in itself).
The nozzles and spanner come in a nice tin, with a sticker on the lid showing how to identify the nozzle you are using (E3D nozzles use a dot system for size identification).
I have two printers currently that sport E3D v6 hot ends, with a clone hanging around waiting to go on my DIY build. I’m going to get a lot of use out of these guys.
All good so far.
Slightly misleading though is all the product descriptions and images around the web imply a couple of things that are not correct. First, the sticker shows two steel options, even though you can’t actually get the steel options in the fun pack from what I can tell.
The other misleading item is the description talks about the nozzles being “set in a laser-cut plywood stand for easy nozzle identification”, but in fact in the two kits I received there are no stands, just foam.
I purchased one kit from E3D in the UK and another from Spool 3D in Canada. The only difference I can tell between them is the official tin shows the E3D logo and the Spool3D version does not. I assume the nozzles are legitimate all the same.
Considering the official nozzles are usually £5 each, but you get 6, with the tool, and a nice altoids-style tin, I would say this is good value for anyone who wants the legit nozzles, and who want to support E3D as a company, plus it is a nice, convenient way to try out different nozzle sizes to see which is right for you.
