Construction and fabrication projects vary substantially from project to project. That's why one of our top goals was to make the Dimide 1/4 Series Clamp able perfectly fit any project.
Dimide 1/4 Series Clamp Interchangeable Jaws
The first step in making the Dimide 1/4 Series Clamp easy to modify was to make the jaws removable and interchangeable. This was accomplished with the use of detent pins in place of the previously riveted pins. The detent pins are easy to remove by hand while remaining secure when you need them to be.
An abundance of Jaw Options
Once the Dimide 1/4 Series Clamp jaws became interchangeable we started to design unique jaws for unique situations. A small example of potential jaws includes wood no-mar jaws, aluminum no-mar jaws, rubber no-mar jaws, step jaws, under table edge mount jaws, pipe jaws, copper spatter resistant jaws, welding ground jaws, vertical lifting jaws, elongated press jaw and more. Additional info on each jaw will be provided in the future. As part of the Kickstarter campaign, backers will be able to vote for which jaws will be released first.

Modular Clamp Structure
It wasn't enough to make the jaws interchangeable, we wanted to make a clamp that was customizable enough to work in nearly any situation. That's why we added ways to reinforce the clamp's structure to use it as a vertical lifting clamp for I-beams, plate, rectangular sections and more.
We also added in the capability to attach an extender arm that significantly increases the clamp's throat depth.
Affordable Quality Niche Tools
Another design consideration that was constantly on our minds while designing the Dimide 1/4 Series Clamp was how to make quality niche tools that were perfect for a given job affordable. By making the clamp modular, we figured out that we could increase the production quantity of all of the expensive high end hardware (high strength screws, side plates, etc...) and then simply sell the modular components as peripherals. This way you no longer needed to pay for another entire clamp just to make it fit your project, instead you could just purchase the add-on that fit your needs.
While we are trying to think of any way you will want to use the Dimide Clamp, we are confident that you will find additional ways. That's why we will be making available instructions, .stp files and drawings so that you can easily make your own modifications to the clamp to make it perfectly fit your needs.
