another thing about bolt hobbit is that clockwise turning dremel engine (my dremel-like tool has only clockwise turn) is throwing sparks at spring mount causing it to melt. so i printed myself mirrored frame for it
A vice mount isnt a bad idea actually, i'll c what i can come up with.
Also, with the fillament guide, you should be able to do that by just changing the tool in the dremel and cutting out the guide hole after doing the hobbing.

Note: To complete the build, you still need the parts from Elk's original little bolt hobbit (gear, lever, dremel collar, etc), i've provided a mirrored and seperated set of "bases" but they only really allow you to print two sides both with nut captures (also, i've not tested that the mirrored base bit actually connects up right, i assume it should but it might not quite be right).
To put this thing together (see images):
1) print both sides of the connector (left + right)
2) attach each connector to each side of the base first with 3 M3x25's and 1 M3x45 (for the lever side, if your not wanting the level, just use another M3x25
3) attach the two sides of the connector with 3 M3x25's
And thats it.
I've also provided a updated version of the bases, they are simply the same as Elk's base but i've removed one of them and replaced it with a mirrored version of the first one. This is simply so you can have M3 nut traps on both sides of the base and not really required other then making it a little easier to tighten. If you have a printed version of the bolt hobbit and you *DO* want the nut traps on the other side, you need to print BoldHobbitBases-2.stl (not the -1 version).
