This is a fortified version V2 of my Balancing Spool Mount. I removed the anti rotation part in the middle. Now I am using toothed washers to prevent a rotation.
The left and the right arm are printed from the same stl file.
You will get an angled spool position for more stability by the 180 rotation of these arms.

Updated to Version 2 !


Keep the metal rods leading to the spool as short as possible.

At the moment it is carrying a 2 kg weight. But use this mount at your own risk.

Version 1.0 - "F_Spool_Mount"
Version 2.0 - "Balance Spool Mount V2"

Added a picture of the weak spot of version 2.
