Where the heck did you find M3 nuts that small?????

Are they too small? Sorry about that I didn't try this current version with the countersink for the nut, I'll try to print it and adjust if necessary
I usually just ""sink" the nuts into the plastic with a soldering iron, so I didn't check the exact size of the socket

Excuse the language, but "My nuts are roughly 5.45mm in diameter" :)

Love the "approximation" :-)
Just uploaded a new version that should "fit" ;à)

You rock! Thanks! Hopefully I'll get this mounted tonight!

That one is definitely better, but the nut holes are still undersized by about a mm, give or take. Also, why did you countersink the opposite side for a screw head? That is the side that butts up against the BLTouch.

Thanks again, I think this will work nicely! I'll get pics of the whole unit up soon!

The countersinks are meant to accomodate the small springs you may have received with your bltouch probe
The springs are mounted between the bltouch's head and the support, so that you can fin tune the probe's height relative to the nozzle

Wow, I feel like an idiot. I saw there were two springs, but apparently I glossed over the part about springs...
