A project log for Stickvise - low profile soldering vise

After over a year of selling through the Hackaday Store I have expanded to add a new distributor - Adafruit!

https://www.adafruit.com/products/3197

Super excited to expand the Stickvise audience, Adafruit is a really cool company. They did an amazing job on photographing Stickvise, check out some of the shots they took! Better than any I have taken for sure. Also on the Adafruit product page you can see a great video of Limor and Phil talking about it a little bit.

Awesome! I hope one day it ends up on AliExpress or similar so it can get free shipping worldwide. For some of us that aren't in USA, the postage from Adafruit is more than the price of the unit :-(

BTW - if you're interested I have a bunch of logs covering the design of a little production milling fixture for the PTFE jaws.  First one here: https://hackaday.io/project/3287-stickvise-low-profile-soldering-vise/log/33407-jaw-plate-production
