This vice is awesome! I build it as a kid, it is 100% high quality steel! The jaw pads are hardened, shaped
to accept round bars in vertical and horizontal orientations. Small work pieces will rest on the recess in
the upper portion of the jaws. The lead screw is machined M16x1,5 for a strong grip.

Nothing special or fancy. Just 3 of my models I needed for my projects

Those are models for PCB I make using kiCAD.
Dimensions are precisely respected out of the datasheets of the components

The first is the reproduction of the audio Transformer CARNHILL VTB-9045
The second one a double switch DPDT I used into an amplifier project
The third one, is a HeatSink for a BJT

This is my very first project ever with a 3D CAD and so with FreeCAD. The body of a microphone I'm building

Some part is already machined. Other ones will come as soon as PCBs are ready.
I show here, while it's revolving, also the inner parts

Howdy :). By chance i found a old screensaver from 1996. This screen saver is called FLYBY2. Some smart guys remade this screensaver
for modern systems, low poly art at its finest. Several jet fighter passing one at the time in a modest 3D environment. I saw the jets and
found the 3D data, it was ***.sfr files. Next i tried to open these files using a note pad.. Bingo! There it was, some simple plain text
describing the elegant form of the fast moving much desired objects in the screen saver. I knew STEP and VRML can also be opened with
a notepad and FreeCAD can deal with these files to make the 3D shape. However this format was different and could not be imported unless
you write a instruction for FreeCAD how to deal with these files. I couldn't do it, did not even find any useful information on the particular
format. I decided to put my discovery here on the forum, maybe get some more information on the whole topic.

It didn't take long some guys found the post. Within a view minutes a very sharp guy called TheMarkster not only figured out the file layout,
he also wrote a working script, bam just like that and the wire frame was reviled. One script after another were posted, each version with a
huge leap of progress, solving problems for several jet models. Now the jets had not only a wire frame, faces were also present. Short after
that colors were introduced, they were not quite done yet i mentioned we need to scale the models up for the 3D print! Well the excitement
and fast pace, i got carried away. You can't print faces you need solids, there i was "standing in the rain".

If you like to see the models, maybe look at them in your 3D viewer, just hop over and try the SurfMacro, it is elegant and fast. You can read
the comments get all the jets, scale them up and after a little post process even have some printable files.
In addition to that get the links to the screen saver in several variants...

All credit goes to TheMarkster, without him screenshots were the most we could look at! (Even those would be small and crappy!)

Here is my U.F.O. according to DIN 6930, inspired by the 1960 SiFi series :).
