Small Victories, or The Most Expensive Bracket
EngineerWithTools last edited by
I have been annoyed for a long time with our Bosch battery charger. Unlike Dewalt chargers, the design doesn't include captured-screw wall-mounting slots. Although I added a hole to the base to hang the thing on the wall like a picture, that was unstable, so the charger mostly lived on the workbench.
I designed and 3D printed a bracket for the underside of the charger, and have thus reclaimed.... 30 square inches? .... of workbench space. All for the low low cost of:
1.5 hours of design time
(1) failed spaghetti-factory-explosion print
(1) T&M for an incorrect part - screw bosses on the wrong side
(1) T&M for the final, correct part
Yes, I have made other useful things and the CAD stuff is for work, but that's still a very expensive bracket. I love it anyway.

Very nicely done! I've built a few useful things for others with my 3d printer but only one or two for myself.

Annoyance can be a powerful motivator. Well done.
I wired and finished my garage based on annoyance. I get it.
