Introduction: C-Clamp to Vice
Hey everyone, I created this kit because I needed a PCB vice and as you may know they cost a good amount. so I set out to design a soft jawed vice that I could print on my 3D printer. I found a C-Clamp and opened Fusion 360 and started to design, unfortunately I didn't document the process in Fusion 360.
I wanted a cheap, light-weight, multipurpose vice that is easy to put together and will work. I achieved this goal it assembles in under 30 seconds and disassembles in about 10. It is self supporting and can lean side to side depending on the leg position. If you have a 3D printer this is the perfect vice for you. Under 10$ and the download is on my Thingiverse. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2024869 Everything you need is in this link the download and where to find the c-clamp I used in this project.
The things you can make with this are endless: electronics kits, repairing tools, bending thin metals, or making a new tool. Just to name a few, this is amazingly portable and its always in my tool bag when I need to go in a hurry. Everyone loves multipurpose tools.
