Stephen has a side gig printing 3D objects. Here are a few that he made that were pretty cool.

Kreg Saw Guide Sled Insert 1
Kreg Saw Guide Sled Insert 1

I have a Kreg saw guide that comes with a sled that clamps to my circular saw. The sled comes with a small insert that can be set for a completely flat saw plate, or it can be flipped to support a saw with a slight up bend. The insert did not have enough support for my saw so I asked Stephen to 3D print a new one that had a slightly higher angle. It was an almost exact copy (with a slight change in pitch) that fit like a glove. I requested the pink color. Its the only pink thing in my shop. (11/9/2021)

Here is a before and after shot of the saw installed into the sled. The guide worked with the insert that came with the guide but I had to be careful to not put too much pressure on the back. With the new insert in place the sled fits perfectly (there is a slight secondary bend in the plate but not enough t interfere with operation) (11/9/2021)

Replacement Cap

The 3D printer can serve a utilitarian roll as well as artistic. Here a threaded cap for Stephen's tablet mount broke so he just created a new one. He measured the broken one with calipers and drew it up in cad. It took a couple of tries to get the threading right but it works perfectly. (06/25/21)

He did that same for the radio knob in Gina's car, but with glow-in-the-dark filament .

Star Wars Star
Star Wars Star

I'm a bit of a sci-fi fan including the Star Wars universe. For Christmas 2021 he made a tree topper star with Star Wars cruisers as the points of the star and the Death Star as the center. You can't get any more Christmassy than that! (12/2021)
