Gramophone Foot

ML picked up this gramophone a while back on the cheap because it was missing a foot. I really like that there are no wires, no cables, no fuss - just good ol' fashioned acoustic amplification. While it's never really been an issue, I was looking for anything that would let me put my new printer to practial use.


This was the very first thing I modeled from scratch and printed. In less than an hour I had measured, modeled, and printed the new part. Freakin' amazing. It probably took longer to purchase, cut, and glue the threaded rod in place.

Knowing everything I know now, I would have done a few things differently to up the print quality and print efficiency, and I would like to make a go of really reproducing the grip texture from the original. Even with all that, I consider this is a successful early effort.
