Prototype of an adapter to mount toolheads for a Thing-o-Matic
(extruder, plastruder MK II, Unicorn pen plotter,...) into the d=52mm h=51mm spindle mount of a small CNC milling machine to use the same, reliable carthesian bot for milling and 3d printing.

This reduces the maximum theoretical speed but since the head is now moving instead of the belt the actual, usable speed is increased as the object will no longer shake loose.
