Geoffs Simple Spool Restraint Geoff Cohen


A simple design I made to prevent the Filament spilling over the Spool's side - it's very annoying and happens (to me !) when I have a very full (or loosely wound) Spool of 1.75mm filament.

The weight that prevents the spilling over can be anything - I used a scrap piece of Nylon (approx 10mm x 20mm x 300mm), but anything that's slightly slippery could be used.

For VERY FULL (overwound) spools I add a little extra weight - such as a 14mm 1/2inch socket on each vertical

I initially thought of extremely complicated kludges with springs and elastic, but settled on gravity as being much simpler - and it hardly ever fails :-)
