The Ultimate Widget!

Please visit OpenSCAD.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be looking at programing the Ultimate Widget as I was surfing the YouTube InterWeb and found Keith’s Test Garage (www.youtube.com/channel/UCiANfkB8tb8V3QnN9zvES6g ) and a video he created caught me eye  and I got thinking, I can design this in OPEN-SCAD and also why does it need to be limited to only router bits! So lacking a name, the ultimate widget was born!

To build this you will need some extra parts (hardware) and I have made a small list below. In addition you will also need a 1/4-20 bolt about 3 inches long and a matching nut to your tastes. I printed the jaws in PLA (see more here: amzn.to/2SXcIzU ) and the bumper in TPU (see more here: amzn.to/2RQsqQ3 ).

—Parts List:
Rod Stock.: amzn.to/2WQoPRL
Spring Kit..: amzn.to/2TK1lvp (VERY handy!)
M3 Bolt Kit: amzn.to/2TK1oY7 (for bumpers)

–Other Handy Vises:

Open SCAD – 3D Printing A Chuck Fixture!

In this episode, we will be revisiting the NYC Style Chuck concept (see more here: youtu.be/wB7eX_EXifQ) with a fixture printed in PETG (see more here: amzn.to/2VRKxo1) on the 3D Printer!

This has been working out surprisingly well for us, as while you aren’t going to use it to machine aerospace parts, it is a functional addition to any small CNC such as the 3040 (see more here: diy3dtech.com/purchase-3040-cnc-router/)

Get the STL from Thingiverse: www.thingiverse.com/thing:3404442

Fixture Parts:
T-Nuts: amzn.to/2t7vAkt
10mm Bolts: amzn.to/2t46TVR
