I made a locking hold down clamp, placed it to my "drilling station".
Have been planning this for a while, made my press for this task.
I need to make ten clamps. After making prototype, i have templates for every part. Making one takes about an hour, or two.
Somewhat similar clamp costs about 42 euros, + postage. So i save 500 euros and get something nice to do for couple evenings.
+ I got reason to make that press.
My intention is to make a set of these, this was first prototype.
Tought that these could be usefull when cutting and grinding with angle grinder... etc
Material is 6mm mild steel, 8mm axle and 8 mm washers.
Swivel is made from M16 bolt, M16 nuts, M24 pipe connection nut and 4mm thick 10/30mm washer.
Cutted 30mm wide piece for arms and handle, then bend them to these shapes.
Video shows the process of making one clamp:

I kindf of have decided things that i really want to learn or do, and now i am slowly making them.
Before i can make a metal lathe, i needed to make bending tools, to be able to make that kind of frame that i want...
Btw. I am terrible teacher, we have apprentice system at work, sometimes it feels that i don't even speak same language with my apprentice.
