    Beautiful work, Stefan!! I especially love those low profile clamps, I will be making myself some of those! They would have been perfect for a few past projects of mine.

    The low-profile clamps would be useful to me for thin plates too big to fit in my Kurt D675 vise. Otherwise, I'll use the vise and save cranking the knee up by several inches.

    I feel that kind of clamp on thinner parts also tends to bend them up in the middle, something a vise doesn't do with the longer clamping surfaces involved. Less pressure on the low-profile clamps would be required if they had knurled or serrated surfaces at the clamping points. Do they have that?

    The saw arbors are what have MY attention. Very nice!

    Stefan,
    Where did you get the design for the low profile clamps? Again, nice work!

    Indicator holder that I can clamp onto edge finder. Had a bunch of really quick run stuff last week, with all differing z heights. Pain in the rear to swap tools between my indicator, and edge finder all the time to set offsets, so I made this. Have yet to make a nice thumbscrew for the back, but it's on the to do list (right after I make a set of rope knurls....)


    Cut the dovetail using the dovetail cutter I made a few years ago (also in this thread).

    AMF - a German workholding company. They have a number of other unique, low-profile designs. Peruse >here< for convenience.

    Arthur -

    That's one dangerous site. They even provide CAD models!!!

    Drool on the keyboard is bad.
