Cleaning ABS from a RepRap (or MB Cupcake) Nozzle & Barrel
Yet another in my series of how to do things in RepRap. BTW I know that :
-ABS let's off some strong fumes when burnt (I have the windows open, and fan on high)
-ABS when burnt let's off black soot (I know, I had to dust the house after my wife tried to kill me)
-My had was under the drop zone for the plastic about 1/2 the time
Ohh and I let myself run low on alcohol, a 3 foot tall fireball is what ended the video (and a section of my eyebrows). This will not happen if you don't let the alcohol get as low as I did (about 1cm).
