Nevermind... just realized nothing is threaded or held on with nuts with this mod.

Well, can’t say I recommend this mod. Why not just ship with posts long enough to go all the way through that could properly be secured with nuts? They make them!

Instead, you have these short posts and just use small holes in your mod hoping they will just dangle in there tight enough to secure the posts. Meanwhile the holes are so tight and the 3D print so brittle that it shatters if you just apply a little pressure to get them inserted.

That was a waste.

Try reaching out to Mezel mods. I'm sure they will make it right.

He will send you a new one, I'm sure of it. I worked on the design of this and I can say that those posts kinda work, but now you have four nubs sticking out the top of the guard that sits on top. This makes it a bit harder to put a figure or statue instead of the screws that work on the supplied posts. Feel free to change it up though if you want.

The posts are there more for stability and to keep the tiny ball in place. The newton ball itself keeps the piece from sliding back down below the playfield. You can even put a washer below the newton ball to prevent airballs (I have never had any myself, but others have. Sorry you had a bad time with it so far, but it is worth it.

Quoted from judremy:

Él te enviará uno nuevo, estoy seguro de ello. Trabajé en el diseño de esto y puedo decir que esos mensajes funcionan un poco, pero ahora tienes cuatro protuberancias que sobresalen de la parte superior de la guardia que se encuentra en la parte superior. Esto hace que sea un poco más difícil poner una figura o una estatua en lugar de los tornillos que funcionan en los postes provistos. Siéntase libre de cambiarlo aunque si lo desea.
Los postes existen más para la estabilidad y para mantener la pequeña bola en su lugar. La propia bola de newton evita que la pieza se deslice hacia abajo por debajo del campo de juego. Incluso puedes poner una arandela debajo de la bola de newton para evitar las bolas de aire (nunca he tenido ninguna, pero otras sí. Lo siento, la pasaste mal hasta ahora, pero vale la pena).

Hi. What does a shipment cost to Spain? regards

It would be ideal if they were longer screws

You'd have to reach out to MezelMods via his website. I don't make these.

I finally got a replacement original Wolverine bash toy/figure to put on top of the Newton ball assembly (almost $150 in parts and shipping), and I don't want to make any mistakes with this.

I'm wondering if anyone that did this 2-3 years ago has any long-term feedback on the durability or ideal mounting method. Is it better to fill up the hollow toy with some expanding foam to prevent cracking from air balls, or would that make it worse? Any stock parts recommended for attaching Wolverine to the base? How about the correct cutting point (at the belt) and appropriate/safest tool to use?

Get the belt guard if you are going to use the bash toy. It should protect it from cracking.
