Artist from Nebraska Steve Lindsay is equally interested in the engraving of metals and other surfaces as in the tools that are required for precise etching. He’s spent the last six years playing with this vise design, which in its latest version has jaws that rotate to hug every object between them. Based on a 1900s milling machine, the fractal components provide a firm hold on irregular shapes such as wrenches and scissors.

Lindsay is currently taking pre-orders for the 16- and 8-finger versions his side, and check out his Youtube for a deeper insight into his engraving processes. (above Kern77)
