    Default Anyone used these adjustable hinge clamps?

    I'm in the process of building a vacuum table and ran across these adjustable hinges. Anyone on GP used them and have an opinion?

    They look weak. I think most people just use some wood blocks to boost their hinges when needed.

    Thanks for the feedback and thoughts. It's a missed opportunity for a manufacturer to implement that design in a sturdier format. I guess those standard, unchanged Speedball hinges do have lasting power, Miklay. Can't a manual printer do better?

    I have those and they use them at SVA. Be not deceived, they are HUGE and weigh a pound and a half each. I like them.

    here's a pic with a full size replica skull for scale.

    a pound and a half each! WOW! List price on them was $68 a pair, which I thought a bit pricey indeed, but you're making me reconsider.
