The original arms work pretty good… until you crash them in work pieces and snap them off. In light of this, I decided to make some out of impact resistant polycarbonate, upgrade the twist nuts to cam levers, and put some N52 magnets in and then I decided to make an extra set for my buddy @ColemanDesignsInc after he had a mishap as well.
Here are some photos and link to the reel Sam made. They are rigid and so easy to use!
John, thanks for the concept here. I came up with a small tweak by using a threaded rod to the length needed, printed a sliding block to replace the factory one, and put a nut on the back side to adjust the tension.
Mine are 2 1/2 inches long all thread. While my arms are custom made/printed, this length would work with the factory arms. That is enough length for full engagement in the clamp as well for a stop nut/washer on the back side.
I the printed slide bar with a stop nut replacing the threaded metal factory one makes adjusting this much easier. If you are using the threaded factory sliding piece, it is more tedious to get the clamp tension just right.
They look great.
I’ve had my OneFinity for about a month now and I crashed my right side dustboot arm. I’ve temporarily repaired it by epoxying a piece of wood in to act as a splint.
Could you please send me the files for yours?
Everyone just message me directly if you would like the file. Probably don’t want to post your personal email.
If you would like it sooner and/or would like to support more upgrades, please consider purchasing it directly from my Etsy shop. It is only a few dollars. Remember this is different than the Onefintiy version but designed to work specifically with their machine and the dust boots.
