Hi all! I have been thinking of my next project for 3D printing & CAD. My last, Education Brake Caliper (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1362673). Back on topic! I am thinking about taking on a Fly Tying Vise as my next project. I do have a vise with me which has a lever type jaw. I haven't had a chance to be hands on with a collet style vises as of yet. Id like to keep as much of the vise 3D printed as I can. I feel confident id be able to do about all of it aside from some bearings and some screws etc. I will/may look to more developed 3d printing methods for items such as the jaws. Id love to hear folks' feedback on superior jaw types. In order to keep costs down I need to minimize 3d printed metal parts. I can see a short pare of lever style jaws, collet style seems to just a pretty substantial length of metal. I like 3D printing and enjoy the challenges of intricate models vs. trinket printing. Anyways, any feedback ya'll might have would be great, area's of concern, places to focus on etc. Thanks all! Chris,
