Mostly Printed CNC tool mount for the Harbor Fright* 3.5A Electric Cutout Tool.

Should be a solid mount for a cheap tool (<$20 on sale using a coupon).

*FRIGHTful how much 'stuff' I buy from there.

I used MakerGeeks dishwasher-safe high-temp PLA at 230ºC. A bit more flexible that standard PLA, but seems like a solid mount. Initially the top mount was one piece with one split. The PLA I used flexed enough to get around the tool, but standard PLA probably would have broke so redesigned it.


Needs seven (7) sets of 6-32 x 3/4" screws with lock nuts--four sets to mount to the tool base, and three sets to hold the tool.

Still assembling my MPCNC, so in theory, the HF cutout tool should work for basic stuff.

I think your z axis are way too long... I mean the 4 legs at the corners.
Shorten them up, as if too long this will cause vibrations and poor cutting accuracy
thank for sharing!

What base are you using for this mount? I can't seem to find it :(

Nevermind... F-Tool Mount.

Thank you for designing this up!

I printed it an mounted it to my mpcnc.. Nice work with the design.. Did you get your mpcnc running? If so, what speed and tool depth did you manage to get that harbor frieght cut out took to do?
