Description
This is the second revision of the spool mount I am using for my Prusa Mendel. In this version, I am no longer using the top parts of Mendel Prusa quick change filament spool. I have designed my own top parts with bearings. This version still uses the bottom part of Filament Spool & Mount System for Prusa Mendel & MendelMax.

Print two of each:

You also need:

  • 2 x threaded rods of 8 mm x 20 cm and
  • 1 x threaded rod of 8 mm x 28 cm
  • 2 x bearings 608ZZ (or a plastic model)
  • 2 x 8mm washers and nuts (Wing nuts are better)

Sometimes, the spool tend to unwind itself when using “real” 608zz bearings. Instead, you can use plastic replacement (608zz Bearing Model)
