Even with a decent basic kit build Prusa I3 clone like my Factory 3D.

Just saying as it seems to have bypassed some ;-)

I've got a generic Nylon printing OK but Taulman Bridge is lovely and far more forgiving.

Nylon prints very well as long as it is dry. As it sucks moisture in the print quality starts deteriorating.

BTW, I have some of the best nylon you can print

+1 on moisture, 80C for four hours and store in/feed from a dry box.

What advantages over Taulman Bridge does that Nylon have? It's 50% more expensive so it must have a very special USP.
The only fault with Taulman Bridge that I can find is that it's a bit on the expensive side, I'd need a serious reason to spend 50% extra,

I have digitized with a temp controller a kitchen oven that bought from boot sale :-) . Exactly for that purpose, drying filament. Though I store it always in plastic bag. And if somebody tells you that PETG does not drink water, it is not so. I know as I mainly print in PETG. And have to dry it.

I dry all filaments i use at 60C.

I dry Nylon with the actual filament temperature at 80C
I have some of those little LCD electronic humidity monitors in my storage/feed containers to indicate when the moisture absorbent material needs refreshing.
