We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is an adapter I made so I can use some carbon fiber rods I already had and that are readily available from Hobbytownusa locally. The original files were for 3/8" rods. Mine are about 5.5mm / .188" OD from http://www.hobbytown.com/Shop/Carbon-Fiber-Tube-24-188-OD/
Print 12 of these and then insert the rods and glue everything in place. Once these are on the rod ends they can then be inserted into the main coupler that holds the magnet. I am including a link to the original files (not including them here).

So what's this mean?
We're sure jamesarm97 would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
