What are you using to center your Amazon PLA spool on the spool holder?

Thank you very much! This is really helpful!

Will this cause extruder wear on taller prints?

I would say that if you print a lot of tall items, it would eventually wear on the plastic extruder. However, by putting it lower and closer to the bottom, the filament comes out just below the middle. This is a better arrangement for me, because you're guaranteed to get wear on the extruder with the stock configuration.

I love this design with the spool holder on the side. I have my spool holder on the top and when it tightens some layers don’t stick together. Will print this today

Worked perfectly with stock hardware. Very nice improvement to better align the filament. This should be part of the original kit.

Thanks, but I am standing on the shoulder of those that came before me. This was a remix of a remix. All I did was fill in the unused holes that CHEP (the guy in the video I linked to) left in his design. I liked the design that he made (he should get all the credit), but I didn't like the extra holes.
