I was just wondering what the purpose of the small 16mm PEEK part is in Variation 1. --Matthew 14:34, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

I think the idea is that it allows you to use a metal bracket instead of the peek block without the metal being in close thermal contact with the barrel. --User:GregFrost

Its actually based on Adrian's Older Design In retrospect, I don't really think this idea (Variation 1) is all that great. The barel butts up to the insulator, rather than the insulator being inside the nozzle in Adrians design. In the end I settled for a Simpler Design --GilesBathgate 11:44, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
