    3-axis clamp

    Borring rainy sunday afternoon
    so I decideed to use it to finish my clamp
    something I started
    prepared parts for assembling and put it on hold

    so,here's a start
    all parts on the table,even more then necesary
    and,unavoidable cup of coffe

    the base is 100x100 mm L-profile (4x4 inch) which has been milled to take out radius in the angle
    and 15 mm thick peace of sheet 200x200 mm

    I left hanges to cool out while I was driiling wholes and tapping threads
    I decided to fit all joints by bolts
    to avoid aany distosions that could be caused by welding,to keep it square

    and...
    as the psotos say to you
    then I was drilling wholes and fitting stuff an I forgot to take more photos step by step
    for down lock I used a 20 mm thread with peace of 40x40 mm box cut under 45 degrees
    for uper lock it's a 16 mm thread
    right hine has pin that easily goes in and out for easier unlocking

    and that's it

    I was intrigued by the title of your project. Now that I see what it is I need to use you ideas. I have a cast iron 90 degree corner vise but was wondering how to add the vertical element. Thanks to you I see where I need go. Keep up the good thinkering.

    bmr27,

    Nice design and I like the stick shift knob for the bottom clamping screw.
