Does this model need a spring like the Zymo head? We just printed one and I can't wait to try it out. I also noticed the spring loaded base plate at the bottom of the adapter doesn't seem to slide in quite as far as the zymo head, though this might be remedied by some sanding...

Hmm... I ended up getting kind of frustrated doing only one tube at a time, and so I've just been taping tubes to the blade of an oscillatory saw.

We were thinking about printing a head that would attach to a reciprocating saw.... one that would hold 2.0 mL tubes (8 or 24) and one that would hold a 15mL conical for uber extractions.

I'd like to get one made by Shapeways but asks if the dimensions are in millimeters or inches for all STL files. Any recent updates?
Thanks for a great gadget.

What? This would be interesting if a bit more information was given. Such as how it is used and what it does otherwise, such things just go away.

Don't worry. I've got a bunch of stuff to post about it, but it's part of a bigger project. Stay tuned.
