This is a thumbwheel to make nut adjustments tool-less. I modified the previous design to remove the sharp points and make it fit a 6-32 nut. If you make this, measure your nuts first!

Basically, print it and install the nut while still warm. Use a screw and a washer to pull the nut fully into the thumbwheel and keep it straight.
