From what I can gather, adding the metal hook to the 3D printed model canít be accomplished.

From the thingiverse link I posted above:
I copied the original design, with a small change to give it a flat surface for easier printing. There is a slot where you will need to insert a metal piece. This is pretty easy to cut and bend. I ground some additional hooks and grooves for more grip (see the image). Then I got it hot in a flame and inserted it into the slot. By making it hot, the plastic will melt and form around the hooks in the metal, locking it in place.

Mmmmm, can you smell it?  Ken Hand has finished baking his delicious dessert/breakfast breads!  Here's the last of the bunch.  Just follow your nose to the rally this coming weekend.  Only a few days away now!  Any questions?  Call me.  903.316.7720.  Be sure and leave a message with your name and number so I can call you back.  Randy Tefft, we'll think of you as we're eating our favorite, the banana split bread.  I would bring you a loaf, but I don't think it would make it all the way to Keene.

Bad news, my wifeís car got really beat up in a hail storm north of Austin last night and is undriveable. Sheís had to cancel her trip to Nebraska.

Good news, since sheíll be home, I can come to the rally this weekend after all

Keith

Sorry to hear about your wife's car.  We got some rain, no hail, but 60 - 70 mph winds.  Some areas of Lindale lost electricity.  Glad you'll be able to make it to the rally now.  Bring your wife with you!

I JB Welded a simple hook into mine. Very strong. Just print a slot for it up though the center of the stem. Very easy to make.
I am convinced that the hook does the majority of the work and is required.

Playing Devil's Advocate.  I feel the metal hook is ultimately important.  Yes, the bolt will hold.  Yes, the newly printed mount will hold.  But it is all attached to the original threaded receiver inside the master lamp housing.  Might be different up front.  Might be different on other models.  But, on the 98EV (to which I am most familiar) all of the rear blinker load is carried by the interior threaded receiver.  Invariably, the screw loosens over time and vibration.  Eventually, as the hook bends open, the blinker delivers a lateral or angular stress load to the threaded receiver and the receiver snaps away inside the housing leaving the blinker to dangle by wires.

I reconstructed mine by lightly gluing the broken receiver piece in place and then creating a solid fill of epoxy to surround the receiver and greatly increase its load capacity.

I suspect that creating a strong mount without a hook may solve one problem while exacerbating another.  I hope I'm wrong.  Again, my concerns may be model and position specific.





I have two 98EVs at over 100K each.  I still reach down and flex each turn signal when I walk through the garage just to be sure the hooks haven't spread open.

I would definitely agree it would be a better option if the hook was part of any of the reconstructed stems. However it comes down to whatís available if one is in need of replacing a dangling turn signal, which Iíve experienced 3 times, to date, with my 02 Stone.
I guess it comes down to using whatís available.
From what I can gather, adding the metal hook to the 3D printed model canít be accomplished.
However it may be possible to add a hook mabe in the plastic while forming?
The 3D pros can address this issue.

Two friends of mine who have Vertigo, and both are doctors say it is a very mysterious disease.

Not knowing anything about it.  But from trials riding, it would seem that consciously working to improve and maintains one's sense of balance as one gets older is a good thing to do.

IMO, while there are biological factors, it is also true that Balance is a skill that can be learned and improved.

Now in my 60's my balance is better than it was in my 40's.

Balance exercises are a great part of any exercise program.  Might not perevent or cure Vertigo, but it won't hurt.
