Converting a PanaVise 209 Vacuum Base Pv Jr. to a 203 PV Jr. Head

Well the title says it all, huh?

 

Various PanaVises, notice the PanaVise 209 Vacuum Base Pv Jr

I want the head to fit in this base.







 

I need the post to have an end like this.


Some lathe time.

And there it is. I bet you can just buy the equivalent part from PanaVise somehow.

Maybe too tall even with my low profile base.
I took about 3/4" off of the height.

Just so.

Now I can hold 4 things at a time, similarly.

You'll See Summer Come Again

 Look at that, another post in under 6 months. I'm nothing if not prolific. Just a picture dump of what I've been up to.

A guard for the power button on the Brother laser printer. The cat would sit on it and hold the button down inadvertently which disconnects the printer from the network. Used my new Prusa Mini for it.






Made a Barton VC Multiplexer.


We had snow for a day in late January.



We Gave away our trampoline, Felice couldn't find the spring-hooking tool, so I made one, just as I finished she came into the shop and told me she had found it.


The slip nut for the kitchen sink drain disintegrated.


Started gardening again...


Started some sweet potatoes.





Expanded the garden...it's now 48' x 24'



Made this little wire weeding tool.


Western Fence Lizard lives in the cardboard covering my compost pile.







Soldier Beetle guarding the fava beans.



I started making kimchi. Felice likes it.
