Snoopy Sno Cone Machine Replacement Locking Cap
by CodeCreations, published
The kids wanted snow cones for dessert tonight, and we were horrified to discover that we were missing a critical part (the "Locking Cap") that attached the handle to the grater. So I pulled out the calipers, turned to OpenSCAD, designed a quick replacement. Tomorrow I will be Superman in their eyes. :)
This prints in two parts. You turn the knob that extends through the middle to lock it into place.

Update 8/4/12: Includes a 3mm hole on the handle. Stick a piece of filament through it to help keep the parts together securely and make it easier to turn.
2) Assemble as shown in photos.
3) Make sno-cones again without having to buy a new machine.
4) Hug smiling kids and ask them to remind Mommy what a great investment the 3D printer was.
