This might come in handy. I'm printing really tiny things, and I might need to experiment with different material. I found that I can't make a peg that it less than 2mm, it turns out flat.

Thanks for your comments! Yes, it's steel; I know when it's shot that close-up it's really hard to tell what the material is... I didn't think the descriptions would be legible if scaled down on this site, but I can try when I get back into town in a few days.

These rings are very useful for estimation of printable slot-width. Even from the picture! Thanks. The photos are steel right?
