I made this PCB vise out of some ground steel rod I already had and spare 3D printer pieces.

I cut a groove into both of those aluminium castings with a mill (which holds the board) and drilled and tapped into part of an old dumbbell for weight.

Adjusting the vise means having to use a 3mm hex wrench, but I have those on my workbench so this is no big deal.

Pleased to get some lightweight metalwork done.
