Introducing Jennys Wonderful Tool Clamp

Post  Jenny Ryan on Wed Dec 28, 2011 1:07 pm

Well these are the first two releases in Jennys Wonderful Things from Passion Models cheers cheers cheers

Jennys Tool Clamp



And this is what they look like Very Happy , the standard PE german tool clamp has long been the biggest pain to assemble , specially if you want to make them workable ....

NO MORE !!!!!


Why ? Because for two long modellers have been trying to stick tiny scale pins into the latch of the clamp , juggling four while trying to allign and then close the latch !!! Frustration to the max !!!! Soooo I had an idea , shared it with my friend Manabu San from Passion models , we have refined the design and thus the Jenny clamp was born , the pins on the left hand side are 3mm longer with a fold line at the correct size , the pins on the right hand side are about half this length also with the fold line . Assembly is straight forward , fold the base as usual , fold the latch as normal but leave it slightly ajar . Insert the left hand base pin into the latch , fold the pin over making this side captive , do the same with the top part then align the other side which can also be bent upwards . There is no way that the catch can come apart now Very Happy . It is designed so that the clamp can be added to the vehicle , the tools and vehicle can then be painted seperately , making tool detailing easier and not leaving a void in the cam around and under the tool position . the tool is then added to the vehicle , a small drop of superglue and close the catch , now trim the excess pin length with zuron scissors and maybe just a small dot of paint on any shiny bits !

There are two types , Early





Now just like my models , I like to add some little bonus goodies , these have Pliers and Spanners , always handy bits for AFV models Very Happy

And late





This one has some superb goodies , wrist watches , a fob watch , 2 cut throat razors , a pocket knife , glasses and a comb Very Happy

So these are the first goodies and I am sure they will make those dreaded tool clamps a lot better for all of us !

These will be available from MS Models , in Australia BNA Modelworld will be stocking them and they will be available from all Passion Model stockists Very Happy .

Shocked Shocked Shocked cheers cheers cheers W O W ! cheers cheers cheers cyclops cyclops cyclops

I remember on one occassion, I was able to assemble a working tool clamp, I think it was from a Voyager PE set. It was a complete fluke, never been able to do it since. These are brilliant, but I have to say I really like those little extras as well, the watches and the glasses especially!

Congratulations Jenny!!!!

Ohhhh! ! ! !

those look fantastamacle ! ! ! !


Now I don't have to get Richie to send me ones that he . . . . . . umm. . . . . . finds Suspect . . . . . sittin around your place anymore What a Face .



With the Aber clamps, I used to take about 45 minutes to get the first one done Mad . Then I would get into the swing of things and they only took me about 10 minutes each. But there was always one in the middle there somewhere that took me back to that 45 minutes just being difficult Twisted Evil . But it seems clear that these are going to take about a minute for the first one, and then maybe 45 seconds for the next ones. Just fantastamacle !

If my hands are working ok, I can do an Aber-type clamp in 30 minutes.

If not about two hours, a lot of which involves battling the carpet monster.
