New Eccentric Spacers

The standard MakerSlide eccentric spacer (left, below) has two new brothers.

Eccentric SpacersBoth new members of the family are designed for plastic carriages.  They are wider (10 mm instead of 8 mm), have the edges chamfered on both sides, and have longer necks.  These features make them friendlier on softer materials, such as 3D-printed MakerSlide carriages.  One spacer is the same height as the original (6.35 mm, or 0.25″); the other is a diminutive 2 mm, for those low-profile applications.  You’ll probably need a thin spanner for it.

You can buy them here (tall) and here (short).
