You never know what’s going to turn up in an image search.

Reminds me of the AntiCam from RC years back, crossed with a CCH Seismo.  But with carbon fiber.

Courtesy of NutStory, CCH Seismo.  From what I’ve been told they were horribly unstable.  

So this, grafted onto a C-clamp, yields the above.


The AntiCam gave adjustable width:

Pretty lame with cams on only one side.

Follow the link...  cams only on the side that gets loaded, like the Seismo.  To have cams on both sides you need to load it centrally like the AntiCam.

I did follow the link.
Both sides are loaded, although unequally.
My concern is that the less loaded side has a high risk of slipping off if the fin is "flaring".
It might be good enough to take body weight while drilling on lead, though.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
