After 2 years of having my Sells Mendel up on wood blocks, I finally took a minute to create some feet for it. I wanted to create something that could snap in place without any more hardware.

I considered replacing the vertices w/ the modern one piece designs, but that thought lasted about 3 seconds before I realized how much effort that really is.


Print 4 or more and snap on the lower threaded rods that run parallel to the X-axis. Optional: Stick on some rubber pads to keep from sliding.

These flop over easier than I would like. Would probably benefit from a wider/lower profile.
