Failed Spoke Wrench

On the left is the spoke wrench loaned to me by my friend Cynthia, which works like a dream; on the right is a 3D printed spoke wrench, which took just over 3 hours to to print on my Monoprice Select Mini 3D printer, which was an abject failure: the PLA simple wasn’t up to the task.

You would need a super-duper hard plastic, I guess.
