$83 from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/E3D-All-metal-HotEnd-3-00mm-Direct/dp /B01F5Z3FQA/

Ultimaker: Purchase Imperial-measure PTFE tubing for bowden tube. Replace tube clamps with ones that won't eat the tube and come loose. Alternately, spec new (metric) PTFE tubing and replace tube clamps.

Updates.

Ultimaker:
Found the correct tubing. Will not cut to length until fittings have been replaced.
Need blue tape for the print bed. Need the stuff around the shop generally.

Trinity:
Need to pick up a washer/O-ring and then finish the wiring.

Thanks be to David and Karen for contributing toward the purchase of new hot end. Seeking further contributions, currently at $45/$65.
