Applying mechanical advantage to the cheapskates would not be a good idea. Now a weighted wrench that would apply the right pressure wouldnt be a bad idea....

The manual shows the proper adjustment ( how they roll) in the video. Yes they say use a 7/16 wrench to do it. But that is with everything disconnected ie belts and arms.
That's why I suggested a weighted wrench to apply the proper tension. Some may be heavy handed when it comes to adjusting them without being able to slide them up and down. Personally I found it easy to tension them with just my fingers.

A weighted wrench or a torque wrench would be good.

But as the angle is not fixed maybe a rubber band mechanism would be better.

Another thing to add to the collection:

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1695141

It's a cartridge system for spools since I disliked the wooden arm.

I'm not sure if the V2 uses the same spool holders as my V1 that I built this for tho.

Looks like a pretty good match for the V2. I have something similar, although it came from someone else, and uses longer cones so that a single set can do more spools, and has a nice big knob on the end. But jeeze, that's a lot of spool holders. how many do you use at once?
