Expanding Cosmos™ Ring Holder Pat. Pend.
A unique ring holder with multiple ways to secure a ring.  Ring sizes 3.5 to 13 with only one Cosmos™ collet.  In other words, many sized collets are not needed.

The photos below illustrate the Expanding Cosmos™ on in a Lindsay PalmControl® vise.  The holder can be used on other brands of vises as well.


Holding between centers
on vise pin plates


Reverse and use holder as
a traditional leather clamp or as
shown for inside ring
engraving.


Use one of the Cosmos centers to secure a ring upright in a vise for access to the ring edge.

The Cosmos™ collet allows its independent pads to be moved if desired.  This is useful if you are - for example drilling through the ring and do not wish to drill into the collet.  Photo to left - The green arrows illustrate the pads moved by the user leaving an open gap between them.  More gap is possible in larger rings sizes than smaller ring sizes.  Click to enlarge photo.

™  collets can be made smaller or larger.  Contact us if you are in need. 
 

Brass Cosmos™ Collet

The Cosmos Ring holder ships standard with a plastic collet. This brass collet is also available. $25add_to_cart.gif

Information concerning Pin Plate hole sizes
This holder fits the pin plates on the Low Profile Turntable vise, Goliath and PalmControl® vises that use standard 1/8" diameter pins.  Let us know if the holder is to be used in the 90lb Titan vise, we will provide the correct pins for it.   Engraving vises from the past used a larger pin hole, around .140" but can vary from that quiet a bit.   Long ago this size was selected because it was a "nail size" (so that a nail could used for pins).  This was before precision dowel pins were readily available.  Engravers aren't using nails for pins anymore.   If you have a vise with larger than 1/8" pin plates and you'd like to use our holder in them we can custom make pins for our holder to fit your pin plate. It would be most accurate to send us the pin plates you'd like to use this holder with.  Cost is an additional fee of $20. For this, just order normally, and in the space provided for a note during checkout write that you'd like the holder to be custom fit to your pin plates.  Then ship your pin plates to us.   We will send them back along with the holder order.

A: Adjustable centers for Low Profiles, later Goliaths, and Titan Vises.
B: Adjustable centers for clamping in any vise.
C: Universal screw plates for Low Profile, later Goliath, and Titan Vises.  Includes nylon standoffs and screws shown. 

90lb Titan Vise note: The screw hold down spacing for these will fit the smaller 1/4" diameter screws holes in Titan vise jaws, so these accessories will fit the Titan vise.  However, the two larger diameter screw holes in the top of the Titan vise jaws could be utilized if a larger version these accessories were made.  If desired contact us with what you may need of these accessories or other accessories scaled up.

Thank Ray Cover for ideas and help making these accessories happen.

Gun Cylinder and Barrel holding attachment

The gun cylinder and barrel attachment will work on the 90lb Titan vise, 30lb Goliath vise and the 16lb Turntable vise. (NOTE: Also see the holder accessories at the bottom of this page.)   This new holder is rigid with a plain thrust bearing that allows the center portion of the holder to spin. The amount of spin resistance is adjustable anywhere from free to fixed, set by the tightness of the vise jaws.

Single Action Amy cylinder. 


 

The Lindsay cylinder holder will fit Colt's SAA cylinders and when installing the included centers, will fit almost every single action style revolver in existence. Using the center points which are included, it can also be used to hold other objects that have a hole at either end. In addition, the center fitting portion can be custom made to fit a particular cylinder so that it can be held without the centers. If you prefer this, send the cylinder you want to work with and the holder can be made to custom fit it. It may also work to send measurements to us and we can attempt a custom fit that way. It would be safest to actually send the cylinder, but we will work with you either way. However, a custom fit is probably unnecessary because as mentioned the center points can be used to hold about any single action style cylinder.  

Knobs (handles) as well as an additional brake can be custom made as needed. Generally the knobs are not needed as the cylinder can be used as a place to grip in order to turn it. Knobs might only create more obstacles which may be in the way of your hand during engraving. Ditto with an additional brake, making it more complicated then needed and creating more obstacles. 

Tip: After your object is placed in the jaws, the fixture resistance is set by the amount necessary to clamp the object. Clamp your jaw snug enough so the cylinder does not turn while engraving, but not so tight that you can not use your hand to turn the cylinder to a new position while engraving. Then once it is set, it is not necessary to tighten, loosen or adjust the spin resistance while engraving around your cylinder or object.

The two below photos show custom knobs
