UPDATE: V2 has been uploaded, the original had a scaling issue and I uploaded the wrong file.

If you want to offset the position of your spool, but still use a spool holder designed to fit the exiting mount holes, this simply hooks on the back or side of the body.

I wanted it for mounting larger diameter spools without the risk on interference with the cables etc.

If you downloaded the spool offset adapter, please download the V2 version. There is a scaling error with the original. Apologies.
