Picture Legend

The picture shows reifsnyderb's hot-end collection circa November 2013. This picture does not represent an "official" collection, nor is it intended to endorse any particular design. It is meant to provide new users with an easy at-a-glance comparison of some (but not all) of the many hot-end designs available.
