A while back, Pete and I had discussed making spools for the ABS plastic that the Makerbot uses.  The stop-gap solution until now has involved painters’ tape and coils of filament laying all over the table.

After Matt had a print job interrupted due to a kinked filament, I decided I had better hurry up and make this thing.

I’ve decided that it’s worth it to pick one random project now and then that addresses a need that the ‘Space has.

Next up: a fully functioning version of ED-209 to guard the doors to the ‘Space.
