1 Inch Project Feet for 1/4 Bolts

In this project we design four 1 inch diameter feet for use with common 1/4 Inch bolts to make adjustable feet for any DIY project you might have.  As we searched Thingiverse and really could not find anything like this.  Worth note, is the adjustable outside is 9/16th of inch while the inside is  slightly over sized of 1/4 inch to allow for epoxy (we recommend JB Weld). As epoxying the bolt head (on all sides lightly) before insertion will make the metal bolt part of the over all structure add greatly to the strength foot and while on the topic would print with at least a 50% in-fill.  Also notice we add support around the bolt head base for extra endurance.

End Caps for 3/4″ x 3/4″ Angle Aluminum Stock

This is an end cap for 3/4″ by 3/4″ angle aluminum stock.  It can be used as a foot or to finish off the top for appearance and safety.  The fit is rather tight so I would suggest printing one and try in it as the gap is around 0.06″ with a bit of overlap on each side.  These where printed in ABS with thick shells and 30% in fill.
