Extruder Wing Nut

Just how tight do you guys tighten the extruder wing nut?

I put a piece of tape on the filament as a marker and extrude 100 mm of fiber manually, then measure how much was actually extruded. If I don’t tighten the wing nut A LOT then I get varying results. By a lot, I mean about 12 half turns (six full turns).


Sound about right.
