Electronics enthusiasts, makers and hobbyists searching for a versatile desktop vise, may be interested in the new vise aptly named the Maker Vise.
Designed by Alex Faveluke and Greg Stephens the Maker Vise has this week been launched by Kickstarter to raise the $15,000 the duo will need to make the jump into production. Watch the video below to learn more about its design and features that can improve your workflow.
Everybody Needs A Vise!! We built a vise for everyone that is so simple and easy to use, it will be as if you have a third hand! The magic is in the Maker’s Vise head, which glides effortlessly along a low-friction track. Once the sliding head is in position just twist the knob for high-speed/low-torque applications, or tighten with a standard hex key for an extra-tight grip.
This vise is for designers, artists, hobbyists, parents, students, modders, builders, anyone and everyone. We want to enable makers of all types to make more, but there is a bonus for owners of a 3D-printer! We are building a 3D design library of custom soft-jaws for holding objects that aren’t flat. This library of 3D-printable soft-jaws will be free to download on our website, and a selection of soft-jaws will also be available for purchase through our digital library and store, where we will print them out for you and ship them to you ready to use.
Maker Vise is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges starting from just $89 and delivery expected to take place during December 2017. For full specifications and more information jump over to the official Kickstarter campaign page via the link below.
