T-systand clamp-Vise, a simple upgrade, Thanks Peter P.
« on: August 17, 2017, 05:14 PM »
I think the Peter Parfitt videos usually are very inspiring. "The Parf Vice Video -an easy to make Accessory" from March 3 this year was no exception. It inspired me to make a simple version for the T-systand.

Since the T-systand already is the first half of a simple vise it should not be hard to make it work.

I tried to keep it as simple as possible. Normal Festool clamps which I always carry in my kit and a simple wooden vise-part.

A few cuts in the Systand and two little peaces of wood keep the clamps in place.





















It seems to work OK, for the little jobs on-site anyway.



Thanks for watching, and Peter thanks for the inspiration

Thanks for the modification tip Rogier, I'll be doing this to one of the two I have from you....I added a metal vise when needed to the other. Your T-Systands are most useful and very handy when you need it...and built tough..have 2, allows me clamp and work almost any length.

Excellent idea Rogier might have to do that to my one.

Hi Rogier

I think that you have done an excellent job on this and consider my contribution to be no more than the match that lights the fire.

Well done and many thanks.

Peter
