The Universal Sleeve Clamp provides a clever means of hinging and clamping two rods together.
It is an extremely handy accessory for your magnetic dial indicator base and/or surface gage.
It can also serve as the hinge joint for a large capacity compass, or inside or outside caliper, much like a firm joint caliper.
Scale up the design just a little and use it as the basis for a universally positionable lamp for your lathe, mill or workbench.
Scale it up to 3 or 4" in diameter, and you would have the basis for a handsome and unusual living room lamp.
Because of this adaptability to various uses, I arranged the drawings in such a way as to make designing new ones at any size an easy matter.
The plans also include working drawings for a height adjustable tool holder for small boring tools and internal screwcutting jobs, plus a sheet showing the sort of boring tools I make. These incorporate a minor but significant feature not everybody thinks of when making tools of this type.
