A few weeks ago we had a problem with our towel dispenser. I disassembled the necessary parts and fixed it. :)
Step 1: Materials & Tools
- ply wood
- wood glue
- optional: PLA
- pc with inkscape (optional: with rhino)
- laser cutter
- optional 3D-printer
Step 2: Disassembling
I had to dismount a lot of things just to get to this small broken gear wheel. I then took the third picture, imported it in inkscape and started drawing the outlines.
Step 3: Laser Cutting
That was a really fast job for our laser cutter.
Step 4: Gluing
Because of the small dimensions of the gear wheel it was a little bit tricky to put on the wood glue.
Step 5: Finished!
After assembling our towel dispenser with its new gear wheel it perfectly works again.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed my instructable!
Step 6: Optional: 3D-Printing
Another method to repair the towel diespens is to use a cad-program and a 3D-printer.
