Final Product Image
The model assembles with the printed H-Clips and needs no glue. The parts print without the need for supports.
If you are interested in my design process and latest 3d printing experiments, check out my website and my Twitter.
This design will probably not work with a brim unless you spend time sanding and cleaning up the edges at the base of the print. This will stick the springs together and make the center channel for the head narrower. Using a raft might also affect this.
If you are having trouble with the head sliding, I have uploaded 3 head files with the stem portion scaled to be narrower:
