    How about making some tools?
    I'd like to share a minivise I made from brass & black acrylic Tool making bar, which has been a real third hand Tool making for filing, sanding Tool making , etc. small & strange form parts.
    One of the advantages of this tool is that it swivels 360 in the vertical & horizontal planes making it universal.
    I designed it to be locked in the rear plate of another desk vise I have, making it more useful yet...

    I have the drawings in Autocad & PDF files, but I don't know how to post them here.

    Could someone help?

    Making your own tools enhances greatly the modeling business... At least it's what I think...

    Very nice work Mario! I only wish I had a lathe so I could build something similar. Care to show us any of your model building?

    Great work, Mario. This one deserves to be in the tutorial section so I'm copying it and posting a copy in that section now. Thanks so much. Keep the ideas coming. l: l: l:

    As far as the drawings, the only way I know to do this is to scan them into the computer and post them like you would pictures.
