Thumb Screw knob
« on: May 31, 2014, 11:37:15 PM »
Was dusting of the equipment and managed to drop one of the counter balance weights and break the thumb screw.


Cleaned up the head



Decided to print a replacement.


Will post the results once finished.

I've broke two of mine. I'd be interested to see how they turn out. Might be the nudge I need to buy a 3D printer ;)

Forgot to post this.

I used PLA for that print, but have now started using ABS.

If anyone need replacement ones, drop me a pm.][URL][/URL]
