Fiberglass rod ends for Rostock
by drandolph, published
Using 5/16 Fiberglass rods from Tap Plastics I modified the Rostock Rod end's to fit inside and bond with Epoxy.
Get some 5/16 Fiberglass rod.
Then some plastic epoxy (or similar)
The shafts are tapered to make a snug fit and allow a place for the epoxy to bond without squeezing out.
The box at the end of the shaft is a support element to keep the shaft center. Just snip them off.
Cut rod to size, apply epoxy inside rod, insert ends, let set, enjoy!
I printed mine in ABS but because of the tapered shafts PLA should work just as well.
