Printer Filament Spooling Issues
Printer Filaments come on different size spools. If the hole in the spool doesn't match the spindle on the support unit, interesting things will happen.
These notes are in reference to our M3D Printer using a HATCHBOX Tabletop / Wall Mount external spool holder, that has a spindle diameter of 25mm.

|Manufacturer||Color||Spool Outer Diameter||Spool Hole Diameter|
|Hatchbox||Black||200 mm||56 mm|
|Hatchbox||Blue||195 mm||58 mm|
|Hatchbox||White||200 mm||56 mm|
|Shaxon||Red||195 mm||58 mm|
The hole in the spool is too large for the adapter, so you use the printer to make some adapters.
