    Wow! This is cool. Machining the key looks very interesting...and difficult. The xpro housing is neat too. Did you 3D print it, or did you find it somewhere?

    Hello Giarc,

    I'm sorry that it took me this long to answer you. I guess I didn't notice your question earlier...
    Making the key wasn't that hard. Afterwards I realized that it would have been better to fasten it a bit closer to the vise but it still turned out pretty ok.
    I found the housing or enclosure on eBay. I think the one I bought came from Germany and the cost was around 7 € (abt. 8 USD).

    Lately I've been mostly milling parts in polyethene and other plastic materials.

    Best regards
    Carl

    Hi SecretSpy711,

    I found the aluminium profiles at a local dealer here in Finland. I got them 50% off since they were emptying their stock...

    Best regards
    Carl
