I used the legs from mscourch's version, but remade the spool ends for a 48mm ID spool. I also increased the leg area on the ground for better support.
Update: Added a spoolend for 38mm ID spools for Signstek filament that I picked up recently.
Update2: Added 71mm spoolend for new Sainsmart filament, they changed their spool end design
Print two of Spoolend.stl (For 48mm ID spools) or Spoolend 38.stl (For 38mm ID spools) and two of Spoolholder.stl. Clean support from Spoolends and insert one 608ZZ bearing in each side. Should be a press fit. I used a vice to gently force the bearing in. Use 5/16" threaded rod and some wingnuts or similar. I used a 6mm allen wrench for now.
