Rolling Pin Spacer by Eckerput Dec 22, 2012

Description

These are spacers to put on a rolling pin so that you can get a specific and even dough thickness. The STL is for a 3/8" dough thickness and about 1 and 7/8" rolling pin. The SCAD file can be edited to make many different dough thicknesses and rolling pin diameters (I didn't try them all though).

Thanks for the correction! It's always satisfying when people use your designs. I fixed the OpenScad file so it is correct now (it was obviously an easy correction on such a simple design).

Thanks for putting this up, once again I went to make something, only to find someone already did it for me!
There does seem to be an issue with the script though.
The comments in the SCAD file says "Diameter of rolling pin", but you use it as a radius so it needs to be divided by two

Makes sense! It just seems like standard office supplies might be easier to adjust than having to tinker around with a bunch of builds.

Instructions

1. Use the customer to adjust your spacer rings or use the STL for 3/8" dough and a 1 and 7/8" pin.
2. Print two of the STL. I used two perimeters and 40% infill, but I suspect many options will work. They don't need to be that strong. I needed to slow my first layer to keep the tips from popping up.
3. After prints are cool, clean up any flanges etc. with sand paper.
4. Clean them.
5. Put one on each end of the rolling pin. They should be a tight fit.
6. Roll dough using the space between the spacers.
7. Make some great cookies (optional).

Nice, but why not just use rubber bands? I think I got that tip from Cook's Illustrated or Good Eats or something. :)

I hadn't thought of that. These might have better control of the thickness though. We use those cookie cutters that imprint the surface of the cookie when you cut them out so careful thickness control is helpful.
