I've seen so many impressive spool related posts recently, so I figured I would share my creation. I'm sure I'm not the first to take scrap parts and make something useful out of them.


In this case, I have substantial pieces of threaded rod left over every time I build a new machine. Some pieces are long enough to be put into another machine, but some are just too short.

Since I get my bearings from old roller blades, there are always some throwaways there, but I clean them as best as I can, and use them here.

No results.

it seems that there is no point in wasting plastic on a footed vertex when it seems that it's foot isn't serving a purpose...

Yeah, but those vertexes were bad prints done while calibrating one of my machines, so it would have been an even bigger waste of plastic to use perfectly good vertexes :-D

oh no, where'd the files go? =-O

The parts used are Mendel Footed Vertex. Everybody know where to get those. Right?
