Chuckle - now I think about holddowns.

Postby Dionysus480 » Sun May 28, 2017 1:11 am

OK - so I got the new mhackney snowflake replacement for FSRs, and I have it installed on my v2. I'm looking for a way to secure my heat spreader and glass build plate.

Any have a favorite glass build plate clamp they care to share?

Thanks! But of course the problem is that there is no clearance for binder clips. I'll need to design something cool like the v3 has. Of course I need to hold the plate on while I print. Maybe some tape as a temporary holder. Bet my trigger point changes for the fsr between tape and an actual firm hold down clamp.

Ah, I wasn't aware of that. Even the small ones won't fit?

Swiss Clips take up much less room than binder clips.
