Dual extruder is working. Although getting the two at the same height from the bed as usual is not easy. Maybe an auto-lift extruder like dglass3d could be used here?

It turns out that the Felix toothed wheel (gear) in the extruders was biting a little to hard on the filament causing it to get chew-up during retractions. So I have substituted a MK8 gear in its place. So far it seems to be working better. This gear gives the filament a bit more space which I can now adjust with the spring/screw adjustment which wasn't really having any effect before.
