Intro: Spring PCB Holder
This Instructable will be for making spring PCB holder.
You will need
23mm wide and 64mm high with 2.5mm thick wire. I got my from spare part store for agricultural machines. The one specific is used as valve spring for tractor motor.
6mm thick aluminum rod
20mm magnet - http://www.banggood.com/4pcs-N52-205mm-Counterbore...
You will need a 3D printer, thread cuter, and a saw to cut aluminum. Also a 5mm chamfer screw to attach the magnet.
Step 1: Print the Enclosures
Attached are 3 parts that you will need to print out on your 3D printer.
Step 2: Cutting Threads
Use M6 thread cut on the aluminum rod.
Step 3: Start to Half Assemble It
Thread the shaft in the bottom 3D printed part. The printed part hole is slightly smaller and the aluminum rod will self thread the 3D printed part.
Step 4: Attach the Magnet
Use screw to attach the magnet. My screws were a little to long. I cut them to length so that the aluminum rod and screw have little room between them and can be tightened.
Step 5: Cutting to Lenght
Assemble and add the top cap. Mark on the aluminum rod the top of the cap.
Cut the rod on the mark and cut threads there to.
Step 6: Assemble
Connect all parts and that is it!
valveman made it!
