This adapter allows you to use a drill to rotate a MagFloat aquarium glass cleaner. (Or any rectangular object, if you edit the openscad file...)


Print it. Drill out the hole using a 3mm or 1/8" bit. Insert an M3 Hex Head screw. (I used a 35mm long one). Use a M3 washer and nut to hold the screw in. Grab the screw with your drill's chuck. Place the adapter over the outside half of a mag-float aquarium glass cleaner, and power away!

Edit the openscad file to generate a drill adapter for any rectangular object.

Can you re-upload this? When i try to download the stl file, it does not download and sends me to page of scad code instead. Thanks!

The STL file is a text file and does have the words "OpenScad" in it (exported from OpenScad), but I think that you will find that it does process if you import it into your slicer program, as it is a valid STL file.

Got it, i used the download all file button. THANKS!

Genius.....What speed on the drill seems to work without creating too much water movement?

I have a variable speed drill with a two speed gearbox and I set the gearbox to the slow speed and then use the trigger variable speed control to about half power. So far no blended fish....
