I made this to be used with my end stop adjuster (thing:15270) so that I could adjust the end stop from above. I'm sure it could be used for many other things. The design was based around a 6-32 nut however you may be able to scale it a bit in meshlab to fit an M4.


1) Print STL.
2) Drink beer while printing.
3) Press 6-32 nut in the nut recess.
4) Screw your 6-32 machine screw down through the open circular recess.
You may need to use two additional nuts to pinch the threads to help screw.
5) Run a 6-32 nut tight to the recessed nut.
Make this fairly tight to prevent the thumbscrew adapter from backing out.
6) Drink more beer.
