Looks like I wasn't the only person to think bearing and stand when I saw these parts trays.. This just screams spin me... and can easily be stacked 4 high on a workbench.

if there are 3 levels of trays, how do you connect them to the filament spool? Is there a long rod?

I designed mine to fit M4 screws. My hardware store ended up not having M4 screws that were long enough so I bought 1m of M4 threaded rod and used a nut at each end to secure the trays.
Check out my make.

Robatzen, your make looks great! I had not though of using threaded rod, but I will certainly be implementing it in the future.

Jimbo, the size of the mounting hole is customizable. This should allow you to attach it by whatever means are easiest and most readily available for you.

Thank you marcd53. if you print some up, let me know if there is anything else you'd like to see added to this project.
