I really liked Pyroball's simplistic design. It is easy to use. BUT the silicone around the nozzle was too thick and it would rub my prints.
I also liked the design from CNCKitchen's around the nozzle as well as the thickness of but the mold was too complicated to assemble in my opinion.
What we have here is my attempt to merge them both together.
- The sock is now 1.5mm thickness
- The sock will not be too low and not touch your prints.
- The stock will fit perfectly.

DUNK PARTS INTO SOAPY WATER BEFORE USING
Otherwise the silicone will stick to the mold! You been warned!
For my own purpose, i printed first two layers at 0.2 and the rest at 0.1mm. This allowed me to have good adhesion and perfect first layer with very fine quality so the lines barely show on the molded sock.
When filling the mold with silicone, fill it about 70% full, so there's enough material when assembling. The handle can attach to the insert via 2 M3x10mm screws.
Nothing fancy, use a pair of flush cutters and razor to clean up any imperfections.
