Simple and adjustable universal spool holder. I've tested this spool holder on a large PLA spool on a 8mm axe.

I printed these and they only screw together about 1 turn before binding. Does it make sense to re-make the "nut" and upscale it 2 or 3 percent? These are my first 3D printed screw threads and I don't really know how to troubleshoot issues with the fit.

Thanks for the designs. I like them.

What print settings are you using ? Upscale the nut will not act like you need, because this will change the thread pitch and will cause a lot more problem. But I can make the space between thread and nut a litle bit bigger. Just make shure you print without support, because this will introduce some artefacts in thread that can be an issue.

Thanks for the reply. I don't recall my settings but I found that with some effort I was able to get them loosened up nicely just by twisting one against the other. After retracting the "bolt", I wiped off some PLA dust and screwed it on again. Now it goes on easily but fits well. I can spin the "nut" on with one finger as you do in the video. Thanks for a great design.

You're welcome! I'm glad that the design worked for you. :-)

thanks, just what i was looking for. doesn't need bearings and fits my hatchbox rolls

Hey, nice to hear it worked out that well for you :)
