The Hands-Free Vise
Division:Health Sciences
Region:Carlton Trail
City:Watson, SK
School:Watson High School
Abstract:Hand operated vises present awkward and dangerous situations when clamping objects that require two hands. The Hands-Free Vise allows operators to have both hands free to hold objects. It uses hydraulic force to clamp objects and is operated by foot pedals. I designed, manufactured, and integrated several new components into the system. Tests have proven the vise to be effective, convenient, safe, and marketable.
