    Ok I need an adjustable handle or low cost quick release for a dual channel T-Slot bed for a project. I've found a picture of what I want but when I search eBay or amazon I cant seem to nail down the actual product name, any one help or suggest a low cost simple way of clamping it into place when its in position on the groves ?

    So this is the handle type

  2. Things like this?

    If it's for repetitive clamping of identical objects, how about toggle clamps?

    I did find "Male Thread Machinery Adjustable Clamp Handle " eventually lol but yours are a lot cheaper !

  4. It was only a random link that I found - I haven't actually bought any of these myself. Don't forget the toggle clamp option if you are building a jig for standard parts. Rutlands had toggle clamps on special offer recently.

    Neale those are exactly what I needed , I need to move 3 motors to a central point along some t-slot rails and then lock in position, these will work perfectly :)

    Get yourself an essential components catalogue for all those off handles, clamps, feet, castors, plugs and other little plastic things you don't know the name of.
