my new horizontal work-holding clamps

Here are some new horizontal work-holding clamps for my ShapeOKO 2 that I designed in Fusion 360 and printed on a Makerbot Replicator 2.

I'm not in a position to watch the video, so would you mind answering what the spacing of your waste board screws is?

Well, mine are 10 cm horizontal and 9 cm vertical. But as I mentioned in the video, the model is parametric so I can easily type in a number and adjust the slot separations.

Also, the design is available here if anyone is interested: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:818842

Be careful using horizontal clamps, especially when doing deep cuts. Removing machining can weaken the material and cause the clamp to come loose. Things go very bad from there.

true, but these don't provide any clamping force. they are simply there to be right about against structure to keep it from sliding. I see what you mean though.
