I present to your attention the vice of mechanical V2.0. The first version of the vice became very popular and the video on my YouTube channel scored 75,000 views (on 14-10-2017). But in these clutches of the first version there were several shortcomings, which I completely eliminated in the new version.

See the detailed video review for more details. You can also download all the sources and print a vise on your 3D printer.

This is fantastic!!! Haven't even printed yet, but tipped just because the idea is incredibly useful to me. Please make more of these useful woodworking tools!

I need one of these and it always seems to end up on the bottom of the shopping list. I don't care if it takes me 5 minutes to tighten, it usually takes me 5-10 minutes to rig something out of clamps anyways.

Again, good with the design, but if it does take quite a while to tighten (as per @Smithy2) you can add a hex bolt to the center of the screw for attaching a basic electric drill. You would most likely need to run the drill at low speed w/ very low torque to not snap the hex bolt off. Just a thought, no idea if it would work.

Thanks again!

Update - three seconds after posting this I saw the remix by @cope413 for a hex adapter for a drill chuck! Sweet!

Hello. Thank you for your feedback and donate.

Hi, what are the size of the screws you used ? thks a lot for this model

Напечатал сегодня такой. Не понравилось 2 вещи:

  1. Сжимание/разжимание тисков происходит очень медленно передаточное число червяка очень маленькое...
  2. Ручка, за которую крутить постоянно откручивается (а крутить приходится очень много), нужно было предусмотреть ось не в виде самореза а виде пластиковой втулки..

I made one.
Overall this was a cool design and took about 24 hours to print everything out. I printed the threads, handle, jaw faces and gears in Glow in dark PLA. I printed the main body in Gold PLA.. Looks cool when the lights are off.
Couple thoughts.

  1. Put the text on the end of the threads for L and R. Similar to how the text is in the handle. Same with the gears, just embed L and R into the face.
  2. The sliders were a little tight, I had to sand them down a tad to make them slide easily.
  3. The gear ratio could use some tweaking. It takes about a dozen full turns on the handle to make it move just 3mm.

Beyond that, very cool design was fun to print and it looks awesome. Good conversation piece.

Nice design, Only wish I spoke the language you narrate the video in. Was able to follow it, but really wish I understood everything you were saying.

Было бы неплохо предусмотреть какую то нишу снизу, для утяжеления модели.
Кому-то может пригодиться.
А в целом конечно - полезная вещь

Крутяяяяк! Респект тебе! Очень круто придумано! Отправляю на печать!

Благодарю. Если не сложно, добавьте потом на этот сайт фото готового изделия. Заранее благодарю

Хороший инструмент.
Жаль из пластмассы.

Благодарю. Но для домашних нужд пойдет (склеить что нибудь, зажать плату для припоя...). Арматуру зажимать и резать болгаркой я конечно не буду....

Thank you. But for household needs will go (glue something, hold the board for soldering ...). Armature clamped and cut, I will not ....
