A simple spool holder made of some hardware and printed parts.


This set allows you to build a fully adjustable spool holder.

You need this hardware:
four M6 rods (20cm), 16 nuts, 16 washers.

And some printed parts: four "cylindersmall.stl" that you download from this page.
And four frame-vertex by bwevans, that you find here: www.thingiverse.com/thing:16347

I didn't need to build support material for printing the cylinders.
The cylinders can be easily moved on the rod to fit the size of the spool.
They work like bearings, but are cheaper.

please include corner connector. thanks!

This is a great idea, you think you can post the drawing files. I dont have any 6mm shafts but i have plenty of 8mm that i would like to use. But i might end up just drilling it out. Well see :P
