Summary

This is a simple yet handy thumbscrew for m3s.
This component is part of the Open-source optics project, whose goal is to radically reduce the cost of scientific optical hardware: by the [Michigan Tech's Open Sustainability Technology Research Group]( http://www.mse.mtu.edu/MOST).

Instructions

Print and put together with an m3 nut and screw of your choosing. We originaly posted this as part of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26752 and the OpenSCAD code is there if you need it - but is easier to keep track of when using in other prints if it is alone.

Ideal for low profile m3x30/25mm.

Thanks to Nick for design.

This component is part of the Open-source Optics Library: Zhang C, Anzalone NC, Faria RP, Pearce JM (2013) Open-Source 3D-Printable Optics Equipment. PLoS ONE 8(3): e59840.

This is part of a larger project to reduce the cost of scientific equipment using open-source hardware. Read more here
