This is a work in progress that I created to help me finish epoxy bonding my own version of plrmaker7's Jon Snow Longclaw blade model on thingiverse (Thing: 1150877). I had two halves of a sword and no easy way to allow the blade to bond fully in one straight piece. I made these vices to help me bond the blade properly. They are available for download on thingiverse (Thing: 3607763)
Each vice makes use of hardware to use as vice:
x2 1/4-20 Hex Bolts 2-1/2"
x2 1/4-20 Nuts
x4 1/4 washers
These can be hand tightened when used to create solid bonding vice.
I printed these with Blue and Clear PETG filament on the Prusa i3 MK2, using 0.2mm layer height and 20% infill. Blade vices are labeled for each mating part in plrmaker7's models.
Will continue to improve, making it simple to create the full sword on your own with vices for each blade. Ideally, will be possible on one flat surface and you could complete in one bonding epoxy session. A second, third, fourth, pair of hands for the cosplay blacksmith in you.
WORK IN PROGRESS: Feel free to leave recommendations for how this can be improved!
