Just wanted to give a shout out that this worked like a charm and fixed some filament pull issues with the default spool holder on my Admilab Gantry 3d printer. Thanks!

Thanks! In my opinion there's no need for bearing spool holders. Glad it worked for you!

For UK users, just go to Ebay search for M4 Bolts 10mm and M4 T Nuts 2020 - I picked up a pack of 5 of each for a fiver in total - £10 contribution on its way to the Designer - thanks fella

Hi, the links to uk versions make it out to around £35 which is a bit steep for 3 bolts and nuts, what size M4 threads and lengths of bolts (im guessing its 6mm m4 nuts but for the bolts, if you can specify how long they need to be, then I can send you UK amazon links that take the cost of the nuts/bolts down to around £3 for packs of 10, then I'd be happy to send you £10 for your design as I am fed up of babysitting the spool holder that came with the 3d printer and yours looks really good with the vertifcal feed

I just measured them and the thread is 10mm long, I believe you can make 8mm m3 bolts work, but I'd go with the 10mm bolts.
