Everyone has an bad fitting or you screw it too tight so that you cant even dissemble it. Doesn't matter the brand, even something reliable like cheapest barrows and the expensive bitspower.


Yeah I figured it might be a universal issue. Yeah you’re right about the primochill I had nothing but issues.
