Yet another spool support. It clamps on to the top of an i2 Mendel and is pretty solid.
The SCAD file is set up for a 2cm spindle - I'm using a length of clothes rail - but is easy to change to suit what you've got.
It clamps on with 2 M3 bolts per support, and has nut traps to receive them. If you're printing a pair, and why wouldn't you? You'll want 4 bolts, 4 nuts, and optionally, 4 washers.

So what's this mean?
We're sure Mids would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
