    For wood filaments best to go up to a 0.5 or 0.6 nozzle. Wood filament can be a pain in the posterior, it likes to block nozzles...
    If it don't fit, use a hammer to make it fit....

    Evenin' Mark,
    Ta for the info๐Ÿ‘ so if my DCM arrives 'as advertised' I'll be 'avin a go next week. Wish me luck!
    I've seen various 'wood' filaments on offer, as well as other curious materials! So I'll be very interested to see how that turns out.
    Not wooden seagulls I hope ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜€ What scale are they?

    Muchas gracias Nick๐Ÿ‘ Look forward to that.
    I just found the BP as well, my 'Oracle' said 39.6ยฐC ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Would have vaporised instantly here last week.
    We had temperatures up to almost 45ยฐC, swelter swelter ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Guess I'll have to work in the fridge โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I have not tried the vapor bath method with Dichloromethane yet, I applied it with a small brush. I will have to find the boiling point, if similar to acetone should work. Just checked the oracle. BP is 39.7 degrees so should vaporise the same. I will have a go and report back....
    If it don't fit, use a hammer to make it fit....

    Thanks for all the info Lads, most useful๐Ÿ‘
    Now trying to track down some Dichloromethane (sounds explosive ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฎ)but we are also hampered by 'Nanny Laws' in Germany โ˜น๏ธ
    Which leads to the question Mark 'What are the lifeboats made of, PLA?
