For years now, I've been using a reel lawn mower, and the plastic roller brackets have been an on-going point of failure --- I cut my grass at the highest possible setting, but there are two additional setting holes which create weak points at which the brackets usually break after a couple of years of use.Drew up a new version of the part w/ only the one setting hole using OpenSCAD:
Code: Select all
exported as a .stl, and then sliced it w/ a 100% infill and printed on my RepStrapOko.Not too much effort to replace a $1.25 part (https://www.reelin.com/ItemGroupItems.a ... GroupID=58
30321-1 - PLASTIC ROLLER BRACKET $1.25 ) w/ something better, esp. considering that it's not stocked locally.
