I tried making a water block for water cooling my MakerGear hot end this weekend.

I’ve been fighting with printing 1.75mm PLA. The thicker brass in the hot end causes the heat to creep up more and make the ‘melt zone’ so long and sticky that the printer jams up. So, I fixed this issue. With one of my aquariums. I am now water cooling my hot end.
