Would something like this work for a quick clamp...or does the closed thickness need to vary? Excuse my sloppy sketchings.

Well, I ran into a couple of hiccups with it. hinge welds snapping under extreme pressure. I figured it out and will solve this problem in the mill with some relief cuts and inside welds...

My first time making one so it is an experimental project for me... but I'll get it licked yall watch and see although I might have to start over

I'm not sure on what I will do... but yeah that would work for side clamps but has to be adjustable pressure where needed and I have an issue with the hinges I need to address first.

ok little more done looks a bit rough hate welding MIG with CO2 gas leaves lots of clean-up but that's how it goes I guess.

a little grinding couple more welds to add a depth stop for the vise mount... some flap disking some sandblasting and then some paint, and a couple of C-clamps and then find a box that it will fit in...

And Yes I have helped so I don't do any hard lifting or grinding. just the lefthanded crappy looking welds plus the CO2 is not doing me any favors...


Ok, so Dubby. we will let the other SFT members input the color of paint they think it should be painted this should be interesting...

So let's hear it, folks "SFT" members, what color?

Looks good Randall

I like nobling’s clamp idea. I was thinking some sort of toggle clamp to quickly hold the plates together.
