3D model description

While looking for a way to effectively hold down work on my 3018 CNC we turned to Fusion 360 and designed this niffy clamp! It is relatively simple with one fixed end, a slider another movable fixed end which uses three 1/4-20 bolts to put pressure on the slider. Both the fixed and pressure bar are held in place by 4 M5 12mm long bolts (see more here: ) and T nuts (see more here: )

Aside from the M5's this also three (3) common 1/4-20 nuts as well as three (3) 1/4-20 3 inch long bolts. For the metric fans out their I would you could substitute something of simular size.
