I made these corner blocks for Misumi 20mm x 20mm extrusion. Misumi sells similar blocks but they are close to $6 each and I need a lot of them. I also designed it to have one screw compress the layers to make them a little stronger.

This type of corner block allows you to use the slots for acrylic panels.

There are three versions. A standard corner and two corners (left and right hand) that act as feet.

I used them to make a nearly air tight spool holder. The extra parts for that are here too.


You need to tap the center holes of the extrusions to 5mm. The hole is already the correct size for that.

The corner blocks require low profile head screws. I used button head screws.

Spool holder (I'll public a STEP file soon)

The little clips are used as wedges install the acrylic panels,

The spool rolls on 1/2 EMT electrical conduit with 5x15x5 bearings pressed in. The handle is made from the same material.

Are these meant to be fastened with 6mm metric bolts?
Thanks for a fantastic design!

Very nice. Have actually had this on my "to design" list for a while. You saved me that effort! ;)

Screw holes are 6mm...
Do that for a reason I'm not seeing? I'd think a tighter hole would aid in keeping things together a bit better, and provide a bit more clamping surface. Possible you could post up a version w/ 5.1mm holes?

The indexing bosses do a good job of locating the blocks. My inside holes are often a little undersized so for holes that do not matter too much, I usually err on the larger size.

Bart, functional and good looking as usual!
