Allen hex key ratchet, to mount and unmount your Prusa printer even faster !

Who does not like to dismantle some printer part from times to times ?

Here is the perfect tool to do it: an "in place printed" ratchet for your Allen keys.

Okay the print itself it not very spectacular, but all the subtlety is hidden inside: no assembly needed, just print it, along with one adapter per Allen key size.

WARNING: Don't forget to print it before taking the printer apart...

Here it is in action:

Great idea. Wish I had one of these when I was putting together a bunch of IKEA stuff.

Well, i'm right handed and my right arm/hand is badly injured right now, and believe me that from my point of view this is an awesome tool considering his simplicity!

I just finished to assemble a printer and my allen keys/screwdrivers were falling more often than turning, in my particular case this might have helped a lot.

Thumbs up!
