    OK I finally got a production run of these done, lets call them the Mark II model.
    They are not perfect, but much closer.
    Features include:
    -Independent micro adjust front/back on both clamps (about 1/2")
    -Micro adjust left and right
    -Kick leg
    -Universal mount for small or large screens
    -Almost tool free adjustment - we will get this on the next round)
    -Height adjustment
    - Minimal off contact

    Right now I have 3 in Canada, and a box of 12 on the way to austin, hopefully to arrive before SXSW is over.
    The clamps don't come with the vacuum table.
    Anybody who is interested in a set, talk to me in Austin, or PM. I have a list of people from the past year who wrote and I will get in touch with you, it's just that I have a bit too much happening right now and can't deal with it till the last part of March.
    But I am excited about these. Projected price $350 includes the kickleg. Special deal on these to GPers. I will get a classified soon.

    when is someone going to finally invent a foot (for the clamp pin that goes against the screen) that doesn't suck?

    that set-up looks great, andy.
    most of the time we never fish!

    you mean to protect the frame from the bolt end?

    that's what the wood shims are for. but I know what you mean. If it is attached to the bolt it always breaks loose, and is tough to make.

    but, this is what I'm looking for, suggestions to make them the best.

    and yes Radar, they bolt to a table top, or a back bar you can C-clamp to the back of you table. Because they move up and down, you don't have to worry about the back bar being flush to the table top.

    Hello Andy,
    nice. Do you suggest them until which size of frame?

    Gently read my PMs, they're rotting and I don't want they'll contaminate your others PMs with molds, slimes and bacterials stuff

    ciao,
    Fabio

    Andy, here's a shot of the clamps on my one-arm:



    There's a nice "foot" on them that doesn't dig into the frame and they work really nicely.

    Also, they make these nylon leg levelers for pinball machines, perhaps you can use something like this:

    OK now we have the improved Mark III model. these are really solid, sexy knurled aluminum adjusting knobs will never break, adjustment locks don't need pliers, back shaft has a second pinch bolt to make sure they stay locked, we have a foot on the clamp screw (well, a big fucking nut)

    the cost is going to be $400.

    offered to GP folks for 10% off (less $40)

    here's some pics.

    - they mount to your table or you can mount to a back bar and clamp it to your table.

    - they offer 3cm (a little over 1 " of adjustment) side to side and back and forth on each hinge, to give you xy adjustment of your screen.

    -they will adjust and lock upwards and let you print up to 4" thick material

    - they include a reversible kick leg - fits on either side of the screen by moving one bolt.

    I'll be putting up a classified ASAP.







    ANYONE who bought the last model Mark II please contact me, we will upgrade you if you haven't destroyed the old clamps.
