    My Ox is currently using the QuietCut 400W spindle with a sturdy but ugly DIY mount. I'm looking to 3D print a better mount. I searched Thingiverse but most of the mounts are for 20/40 rail spacing and Im using 20/60 rail on the Z . the spindle is 52mm in diameter - does anyone have a 3D model they'd be willing to share?

    If you send me a drawing or a model to be modified I'll do it. I thought all versions were floating around here though.

    sasquatch, as i'm still in the learning phase of 3d modelling and design, it would be most welcomed if you remixed one that would work with 20/60. Thank you!

    The stl files would be fine, and yes I'll be bolting it right to the 20/60 rail, no plate. Thanks again

    have a look at these the rear can wrap around the side for 4 more bolts or use the one without side wrap
    the front will fit either i used openbuilds screws and slot nuts for my hardware alsi i printed PLA with 70% infil, solid no flex
    youre welcome if you need adjustments let me know

    Awesome sasquatch! Printed this afternoon and works beautifully. Went with 100% infill for stiffness and it's probably going to stay as my mount until i upgrade the spindle. Thanks again
