Here is another vise :)

I found this one very nice but i wanted a more practical knobed screw so i made my own version from scratch.

This is for desktop use.
Usable size: 0mm to 88mm (0" to 3.46")
Total print time: ~7h

If you decide to make one, hope you will have fun ! :)

(Ps: on the real picture, knob is smooth but not on files, i adjusted that)

Mine ended up not working :( The screw seems fine but it just slides through the body threads. Not sure what went wrong. Printed on a Monoprice Ultimate at .2 mm layer height. Looks good though haha.

Oh it's weird, sorry to read that, don't understand where is the problem. A scale problem in your slicer ?

Possibly. Still beautiful though! I can shim the threads in the body and at least display it holding another printed item in the jaws. Thanks for sharing!

Thank to you cnodie1 !

Maybe you can just reprint the screw to fit to the vise. If you need help i'm here :)

What size screws do I need to assemble it? All my parts are printed and look good.

Hi bmadonnaster, i used 2 small wood screws. You can use for example 2.5mm wide x 15mm lengh screws.

Super impressed with the fitment and design. This was the first sizable project I've printed. As a machinist I am very impressed with the threading and design you've made. The base of my vice warped a little bit, I may reprint it. I'll probably end up keeping this in my toolbox!

Hi Jared, thank you very much, i'm glad to read that !

Pity that the base warped a little. I had such problems too on big parts, i tried 3DLAC it's fantastic for that.
