Apparently there is no real standardization in spool sizes. This vexes me.
I redesigned the spool holder to be much thinner. This also required the male/female brackets to be flipped and the female one now prints holes down.
It can support spools with inside widths of 52mm to outside widths of 107mm.
Again, i recognize that this is complete overkill, but I haven't found a spool that won't fit yet.
Print the male and female parts twice and one dust filter. Note that the dust filter now clips to the top support of the male bracket and the bolt for the bearings to prevent the filament from rubbing on the threads.
I used a 5/16" x 5" bolt since I couldn't find an M8 bolt long enough readily available.
The assembled order pictured is:
B - 608 Bearing
W - Washer
P - Penny washer
N - Nylon lock nut
H - Bolt head
R - Printed bracket
