    We ordered one of these kits and I was very impressed with how complete it is. For whatever reason, this is not entirely clear on the link so I'll include some pics.

    http://www.reprapdiscount.com/hotends/67-hexagon-hotend-set.html

    Included:

    Hot end cooling fan and active cooling fan.
    Thermistor pre-wired and terminated with a locking plug.
    Pre-terminated extension cable for thermistor.
    Rubber retainer.
    Heating element.
    Two grub screws and two hex wrenches.
    Aluminum mounting bracket.
    Completely assembled metal parts, to include the nozzle pre-installed.
    Wrench for nozzle.

    This is the stock hot end that comes on the Robo. We stock it occasionally, and I think someone else on the forum occasionally carries it on their ebay shop. save you the shipping from china.

    If you ordered a new hotend you should have went with the e3dv6. It's worth the extra $20 or so.

    I will be going with the e3dv6 when I get a couple more printers in. I need it to print some springy material that just won't feed through the v5 or the reprap.

    Which one should I order? 3mm or 1.75mm? (I have a Robo 3d R1)
    Robo 3D store is sold out of hot ends.

    Robo uses 1.75 mm filament, unless you want to completely retrofit your Robo for 3 mm filament, then stick with the 1.75 mm.
