Update: I uploaded a newer version (V3) with a different cutting angle and better tolerance.

At last, a safe, easy all in one filament trimmer that looks cute. I glued on an eyeball, but feel free to paint or detail as you like.
It employs a common No. 11 hobby blade and can be mounted anywhere with silicone or my favorite - double sided 3M tape (the grey stuff.) It cuts 1.75 easily and 3mm fairly well. I will build a beefier version for 3mm if requested.
