Spiralhose Adapters (40 mm)

For years I avoided 3d-printing because of various reasons ... * material (plastic only) * time (takes for ages) * limited size (can't go bigger than 20 cm, still the bigger the longer it takes) ... but, there are objects that can not be done with a CNC machine, at least not a machine you could afford. So, price dropping, quality increasing, reduced fuzz about tweaking the printer, I made the step and bought an entry-level printer. As with my CNC machine I was looking to make something useful right away, so I started to design adapter for the spiral hose that is used for dust extraction. The first one took two trials, with the second I succeeded right away. I treated the surface with sandpaper and a coat with lacquer for cosmetic reasons only. Actually I am pretty happy how this worked out. *Make sure to get the direction of the spiral right, or you'll end up printing this more than once*
