Whoops, mine snapped off, too. PLA 0.5mm nozzle. The lever is so thin that there is only one outer layer left plus some random infill here and there. Anyone got better results with a smaller nozzle?
very cool idea, unfortunately they didn't work for me. I printed them on an UP! printer with "solid infill" and fine printing level - basically as beefy as a part can get on an UP! printer.

When I tried them on my 700c roadbike tire, the thin front part snapped right off :(
Just made mine! pics tomrorrw

Absolutely Brilliant! Very useful thanks!
I printed one last night with ABS at .30 layers and 35% infill and it seems plenty strong, although I haven't given it to my brother for actual use on a bike yet. Even the narrow tip seems very rigid.
What type of plastic did you use? What amount of infill do you need to make it strong enough?
Great idea for yet another simple plastic tool that needs to be replicable! Thanks!
A must-have tool, even better if we can print them :)
Wow. You're amazing. I'm so thrilled to see this actually working now! You're the greatest.
