M5 Nut Holder for MakerSlide and Misumi 5 by ngarst Nov 5, 2012

Description

This is a a replacement for the proprietary nuts that Misumi sells for their extrusions / makerslide. It allows you to still use M5 bolts.

The only catch is that you need a slightly special version of the M5 nut, the half-height version. It's on mcmaster-carr as part number 90695A037. The dimensions of the nut you need is 8mm wide by 2.7mm high.

Awesome, thanks for these! Also the name of half height nuts are called jam nuts, just in case you don't buy from McMaster.

Instructions

Be warned that you need a fairly well calibrated printer for this. I added a bit of leeway anyway, but it will probably be tight. Also, printing with brim enabled (on slic3r at least) helps.

Be warned that these are fairly fragile along the thin lines, and are prone to snapping. They will, however, still work if bent back into place.
