February giveaway

Post by Charlie Schultz »

Hi everybody,

Steve Senseney made and donated six of these clever jigs to the MIMF (many thanks Steve!). I'll offer a couple up for a giveaway (including worldwide shipping) this month to a (legitimately) registered MIMF member. Here's how it works:
- If you're interested, reply to this discussion
- I'll assign a number to everyone that responds (duplicate entries and bogus user names will be ignored)
- On or shortly after March 1, we'll use an on-line random number generator to pick *two* winners

From Steve:
These are for working on nuts. I suppose you could work on saddles also, but I haven't really used them for this purpose.

I made one quite a long time ago, out of some scrap wood. I made a series of these for the MIMF.

The magnet keeps the nut in place while you place the entire outfit in a vise.

I don't have the "Parrot" type of vise.

I use a steel vise for things I need clamped and held well.

The outside magnet has two functions. I can place the clamp on the steel cabinet that I have next to my work area for storage.

The second function is that the outside magnet is set at the right height to hold the clamp in place in my steel vise.

For my purposes, it works quite well.

Of course, it is osage.

WOW !

This is the first thing I think I've ever won. Charlie, are you going to start offering Lotto tickets anytime soon?

Missed the drawing, but I'm going to make that jig for sure, so I still feel like a winner :)

Wow! I just got mine and I'm really impressed.Thanks, Steve. From the description I didn't understand that there are two magnets on the inside and they not only hold the part in the jaws but they also hold the parts together when not in use.
