My wife is starting to regret getting me a 3D printer for Christmas, I spend all my time playing with it now.

I've been working on a deflection gauge the last few days. Here's what I got so far. It uses one 15mm M3 screw for the adjustable clamp. I used the sticky edge of a Post-It note and marked it to measure deflection.

https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/50787619_10156859646719847_1128088828335095808_o.jpg?_nc_cat=106&_nc_ht=scontent-dfw5-1.xx&oh=052a55898f33b1d0135294a56d1aa502&oe=5CB56363

If you have any suggestions to improve it, let me know. I'll post it in the Plan Gallery under 3D  Printer Files within a couple days.

Glad you like it.

Playing with the 3D printer keeps me from getting bored between flying sessions.

Keeps me out of gangs too.
