The Tale of a Resistor Lead Bending Tool Photo | #3Dprinting #3DThursday #makertools

Last week I saw a conversation online that went something like this:

“Hey does anyone have one of these?”

(That’s the resistor lead forming tool from EMSL.)

Later, someone mentioned, “render up a .STL file for this- it’s begging for a 3D print.”

Someone replied with a link to:

Lead Bender (Multiple Sizes) here on Thingiverse.

Just a couple hours later that same day someone else printed it:

From picture to file to print in the manner of a few hours!

[h/t Gar for posting the picture, raising the question, and thereby stirring the maker nest as always!]
