First Functional Print

I did some #3dprinting don't ask why but i needed a small bracket to hold a aluminium tube across a vase. But first i had to make a more permanent setup for the #makibox also created a spool-holder so it fits on the shelf.






some bearings, washers and a threaded rod. I had to saw off the bracket. This keeps the spool nice and smooth. I might cut the threaded rod to size but will see. 

The print needed to be as small as possible and still "strong" the first prototype was like 2 times the size. Slimmed it down and printed 4 at the same time. Remind me to add a photo of it in action ;-)
