I do a lot of 3D printing and use a plier style micro wire cutter for a number of purposes:
- cutting filament ends
- removing FDM support material
- popping parts off of FDM and SLA built platfroms
- cutting off SLA support structures.
I have a wooden bar with strip magnets in it that is useful for hanging metallic tools. That is how I used to store these pliers so they were readily accessible. The only problem is that based on how they are made, they don't stick real strongly and can easily get knocked off fall into not easy to retrieve spaces.
Today, I decided to do something about it and built this hanger that is glued to the mag bar with Goop adhesive. I thought of putting magnets in it, or steel but since I don't need to move it, I decided to just glue it. Now the cutters are safely and securely stored yet easy to access...and they won't fall down.
The design I used wraps over the top of the magnet bar and that is where I put the glue. I am also uploading a version with several 1/4 inch holes for screws, if you just want to screw it onto something. While I am at it, I will go ahead and to a desktop version.
Inland or your choice PLA or ABS if you can print it well
You should print with support and depending on how you choose to orient these pieces they may use a little or a lot.
For the one that hangs on the mag rack, I actually printed it upside down and it only placed support under the tip of the holder.
The screw mount ones could be printed on their backs or vertically as they would hang.
For the workbench version, you can print as it stands or in another orientation.
