    Hey everyone,

    I recently received both G1 Jumpstarters super cheap. Problem though, is that neither of them have the "bracket" that holds their feet together. Anyone, who sells designs on Shapeways, able to make replacements? I'm hoping the brackets could be printed using clear plastic, but in truth, I'll take ANYTHING.

    I can try if you can give me an image of what you want, don't have a jumpstarter lying around.

    I have both G1 Jumpstarters and the bar between the feet is held on by a screw. I can take photos/measurements if that helps.

    I'll look into it, but the hole diameter and such, thickness of the piece, height of those tabs, all of it , could be also helpful;

    Thanks guys.

    I've been away from the site longer than I wanted to be. Thank you for looking into it.

    I've already made a design , but I need more dimensions from the holes and such.
    And I don't know it yet, but I think it's going to be cheaper to look on ebay and buy a second one and take the part from that one.

    Thanks for looking into it. If you think it may be more expensive than buying another junker, maybe I'll just cut a strip off of a CD case and glue that to his feet.

    yeah I'll upload the design to Shapeways and put the price here later today. The design now has more volume than it should be so, it should be cheaper than the price I'll put here.

    Delayed to friday, no time today!
