Fully printable PCB vise without glue or screw. by sam0737 Apr 1, 2013

Description

This is based on the "Fully printable PCB vise", but I don't have glue with me, so I modded it with a dovetail joint, it might not be visually appealing, but it works!

thumbscrew does not fit the main screw :( too loose not useable.

not impressed after 3 hour + print...

There seem to be a few parts missing. There is no base in the files, and also no peg for the other end of the screw and no pinch bolt.

Ar ha that's interesting.
At the mean while, the original author has made an simpler alternative which is also very attractive to me: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi....
But they would require me to buy magnets, metal plates and glue - which I got none =P

Instructions

I remodel them with Solidworks. The primary changes or dovetail on Swirl and Bracket. The swirl has a much thicker neck (20mm) - because I broke my original one when it falled on the ground.

I also found that the jaw was too tight for me, so I remodel it and loose it up a bit (enlarging radius and pitch angle, reducing the length) - still tight enough. Moreover, I can't print the vertical gap - the island is kept being knocked off, so I take them away. Sorry for the filename - I forgot which is left and which is right =P

Update 2013-04-02 I remodeled the Screw and Thumbscrew.
Mine machine is vertically challenged, and it takes years to print the a half of vertical screws (because of cool down), not to mention how many times did I break the internal flap.
I remodel it, lay it down horizontally (150mm long), chop it up a bit. It's not a circle but We don't need full circle of screw for it to spin anyway, so it works. I drew a thin rectangle on the base so it is much easier to print, otherwise the 1st layer will be kept knocking down - perhaps my printer issue.

For the thumbscrew, I broke 3 - the interconnect broke. So I changed the interconnect key to rectangle. It should still accept the original cross interconnect. It's much harder to break now.

Very well done. Just a comment.... think it would be nice to have one more piece to this thing which would be a speed handle. The spinner knob at the end is a little to small in my opinion and to close the vice from a large to small gap would take forever. Consider adding a 'speed handle' such as this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
