    That may be the snazziest vise/clamp kind of thingy I have seen yet. (Seriously, though. Very well done. And I'm especially gratified that you stand up for the dignity and craft of stick welders everywhere.)

    Thank you very much for the comments!

    I supposed to make a short video about making "tooling" for this. But i have fever. So, i decided to leave it for now.

    Here is some pictures.

    As you see, Half V shaped jaws works nicely for holding different shapes.

    Of course, sometimes you need bigger jaws too.

    These holes and this latch is to allow mounting of optional jaws / tooling.

    Also, Red jaw can be turned 180 degrees, and clamp can be used for pulling / spreading too.

    Example, for rounding elliptical pieces etc.

    For this purpose i will make " L shaped hook ", that will be bolted to that front jaw.

    So, there is the whole idea.

    Thanks for checking it.
