Someone please print one. I don't have a printer, but I would love to see if it works or is remotely practical.

What size did you make the holes? My bits are 1/4" and don't seem to fit, they're just a hair too big.

I like the shape of the handle a lot, although I shortened it before printing.

Stefan - in reply to ssd

I think the holes are .29" diameter. In Laser you have the kerf to offset for. On a Makerbot, you have sort of the opposite. I don't know how that changes hole diameters. If I had a makerbot to play with I would likely shorten it a touch, or hollow out the tail end a bit. Please post pics. Also, if you print another one I would be happy to buy it from you.

A very practical piece
