what size screw is this designed for. because small means many things to different people.
to me a small screw is something along the lines of a m2 by say 6mm long. this is the smallest i stock.

im vasry interested in this thing. and await your response so i know what to order (if needed)

M2 5mm long countersink is the best, but can take more or less.

Excellent, thanks very much


Printed this yesterday but it is too small?

I have a 120 inch tape and managed to wind just over 100 inches before it jammed tight?

Good idea though and nice design


There is new .stl files for the drum and the housing with 2 mm wider diameter. Hope it will solve your issue !

Yeah, it's a bit tight in the end. I think i'll change the outer diameter.

What size X length countersunk screws did you design this for? Making sure that i have the required hardware before starting the print

Could you share the CAD files, i am trying to modify this to work with M4 countersunk screws which i have spares.

I can't for the moment (files are not on this computer), but may i suggest you print with little more bottom layers and outline parameters and drill/countersink manualy after print ? I understand it's not the easiest method, but il will be fully functional and available now ...

good thing you've been going with the nsfw tag there ;D

happy to try out your design after the current print. a previously "featured" tape reel from this site left me disappointed.

I don't know what nsfw tag mean, but i'll be more than happy to read your feedback about this design. Thank you !
