We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
I really love using Gregs Hinged Extruder; but with a new printer, I was in and out of the filament slot so often I found I could use some help. I read Rich's Blog http://richrap.blogspot.com/2011/06/1st-replication-and-design-improvement.html where he discussed a simple lever. I could not find his STL file, so I quickly did this attempt in Google Sketchup.
[EDIT - I have uploaded a cleaner and more centered lever.]
If this already exists then please accept this as just my version that I printed.
Print, remove bolt of old Idler, replace with new print, and reassemble

So what's this mean?
We're sure ChrisMagno 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!
