Yet Another MakerGear Tool Holder for the M2

Post by Jules » Thu Apr 02, 2015 6:01 pm

Late to the party again....

This mod moves the dryeti z-stop wrench holder up to the top, to make room for a spot to hang your calipers off the front. (Removed the large screw driver holder hole, since that isn't shipping with the machines anymore.)

The one printed below also has a slot for a tiny bubble level that I use to check the bed. (Didn't include that on the one I uploaded.)

Anywho...it's been "Thingied" if anyone else would like to use it to park their calipers near the machine.

Jules, you mention you use a bubble level to check the bed. How does that work? I was under the impression using a bubble level to check the levelness of the bed does nothing as the bed needs to be level to the nozzle, not earth. Anyway, thanks for the tool-holder.

Haha, that's awesome -- I've got the exact same calipers, and my current tool holder is in that same orange. :) Definitely looks like I'll need to upgrade my holder...

Chuckle! I've got a bad habit of taking the glass plate off to spray or clean or pry off a print, and not seating it completely flat on the bed (it's a snug fit). So at least in my case, it does need to be checked relative to the earth. :lol:

(The spider supporting the plate is perfectly level.)

That "orange" is just my extremely crappy iPad camera....it's actually printed in the eSun red PLA. (It looks a lot redder in real life, and matches the exposed red wires and screwdriver pretty well.)

That is the dryeti Z-stop wrench. (Used to loosen the nut to adjust the Z-stop.)
