Tensionable Table vice for 1x1 inch grid #6 hole mountingboard.
Designed to compliment the Modular Table Vice designed by SchmidtN, can be used alongside his device as they provide the same part offset and spacing options.
This vice adds the ability to tension the vice after it has been installed.
This design allows for a high holding force with these vices without the use of additional clamps or fasteners.
The device is designed to be held onto a 1" x 1" grid of #6 holes. The tensioner slide is secured using a 3/4" #10 screw and nut combo.
Print one of the Vice and optionally one of the Slide. The vice will function without the slide. You will also need 2 #6 screws for fastening down the vice and one 3/4" #10 screw+nut combo for securing the optional slide.
I used ABS due to its flexibility though PLA should work the same, just be more brittle overall.

Use a high infill for strength.
The two pieces are assembled together with a single #10 screw and nut combo. The nut is nested within the printed slot, it should be a snug fit, so if it doesn't immediately drop down you can press it in with a screwdriver. Press the slide into the alignment grooves with the hole facing the screw so that the #10 screw will bite into the slide and help secure it in place.
