    Thanks Tweakie. It takes some time to print. I printed it on Makerbot Replicator 2 and it seems extremely solid and sturdy.

    Hi Iwan,
    This is great. Thank you for sharing this. Would you be able to upload a STEP file? I'd like to make minor modifications to suit how I want it mounted on the extrusion.

    Hey Iwan, thanks again for this STL, it came out great. I am using an OX so I have the 20 x 60 Z axis which puts it off centre so I just drilled through and attached T-nuts behind which worked well. Might be even better to mod the design for the holes. I countersunk the top holes as they pushed the spindle off centre.

    Thanks Mitchel, looking great. I use a 20 x 80 and four cube corner connectors (thats what the 2 knobs on each side are for) to fix it. I printed a version with carbon fibre pla High Performance HTPLA - Carbon Fiber which made it extrem strong.
