This block holds the stepper motor and attached Greg's Wade Extruder for use with a Bowden Tube adapter on a Rostock-mini.
It uses the M4 screws that hold the top acrylic plate to the smooth rod holder to hold it cantilevered over the back of the rostock-mini. You could use it for any other printer where you wanted to orientat a cold end extruder in the same way by making your mounting holes 60m center to center. It only uses a single M3 screw to hold the NEMA 17 stepper in place, and makes use of gravity to make sure nothing goes anywhere, so I wouldn't recommend mounting it in any other orientation, although it may work OK sideways if the M3 screw holds...
Combine it with a bowden adapter late for the Greg's Wade Extruder (such as the one I made at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:73761 )
