Anyone who has an otherwise indispensable PanaVise, Jr. knows that that the turning knob can be sort of a pain. MAKE Flickr pool member Triggerdog7 got fed up with his and came up with this larger, easier to crank wooden jobby. Nice.

    This is a significantly awesome modification! I have cursed that slow turning screw on a number of occasions, and applaud Triggerdog7 for doing something about it!

  • Gareth Branwyn

    I know. That wing nutty knob thingy is annoying. Love this cranky solution.

  • Spikenzie

    Every time I turn that screw, I think, there has to be an faster way.

    • John Park

      No doubt. Marc and I discussed adding a motor at one point. I’ve always loved those belt and pulley systems like the steam engine guys use. I’d love to have a huge boiler at one end of the shop supplying power to turn my Panavise ;)

  • PushTheOtherButton

    Yes yes Yes! A nessential mod that I will make asap to my panavise.

    Here’s the deal. Goto Look for the link at the top titled contact. Select my name, Gary Richter, President. Tell me the following, swing arc (center of the 201 knob to the center line of the crank handle) you want. Easy on,easy off vs attaching a screw (in other words, do the course adjustment with a larger crank and then remove the crank quickly or leave it in place). Plastic or die cast metal.

    We have a very full plate making new products right now. Not something we will do next week. Maybe by the fall. Fill out the above and we will send you one to test comment on and or other goodies.

    Thanks for listening and a very cool idea.

    • Gareth Branwyn

      Thanks for chiming in here, Gary! Very cool.

      Is this offer for anyone reading Make: Online? We can definitely loop back and post pics and feedback from makers if they request one of these from you and after they’ve had a chance to play with it.

      I love this sort of responsiveness from companies and us being able to play a part in helping consumers help manufacturers make better, more useful products.

      And thanks for the PanaVise, BTW (speaking of useful products).

    LUKE SHAW: ITV made bang ca cuoc bong da Chris Smalling their Man of the Match, but I’m calling Shaw as England’s best player. Given the opportunity to move forward at will, and did so with style. Assisted England’s first goal cá cược bóng đá hôm nay with a pull-back cross. Shaw’s average touch position was beyond the halfway line, an indication both of his own endeavour and England’s dominance. As Sarah Winterburn wrote on Saturday, he could be England’s left-back for the next 12-13 years.

    My question is; why was Danny Ings not given a ban during Mark Noble’s appeal? Ings rolls around on the ground, when Noble clearly has bóng đá cá cược not touched him. The fact that that Noble’s red-card was rescinded, proves this. Why was the next step not then taken to give Ings a ban? Is this new law going to be one where big clubs get off and small clubs get screwed?
