Reels for 5lb PLA, ABS tip

Recommended Posts

Posted · Reels for 5lb PLA, ABS tip

Last order of PLA from Ultimachine didn't come with a spool.... been winding it onto smaller spools I had laying around. Been looking into making my own spool-reel combo. Swung by the local big box hardware store and asked what they do with their old electrical spools once they used them up. Turns out they just throw them away. I Just asked If I could have one and they more than happy to give one to me.

Great tip!

Another source of free reels could be electricians. I know for sure they have large spools they throw away (because we used one in a project I did with an electrician)

Now fill that one up with PLA!
