    Got so fed up stripping the print head down to recover the circlip I knocked this up using Design Spark Mechanical - free from RS Components.

    Perfect. I've dropped the clip enough times to know the pain. But I printed my own version version, designed in FreeCad. Will upload my version right away.

    This printed great! Nice quick print. I look forward to never losing the blue clip in the printhead again.
