Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Stitching Pony Clamp!

Adam’s latest build is a new tool to aid in his quest for precision in his machining and other shop work! It’s called a stitching pony by leatherworkers and is essentially a large third hand for holding onto raw materials or parts while he works on them. And Adam has come up with a way to make his stitching pony quick to release, tighten, and operate!

  1. One mechanism gives you consistent, repeatable clamping pressure with a single motion, the other does not.

  2. Very nice, but a bit too much give I’d say for this kind of precision work? Personally I wouldn’t like the wobbling.

  3. Seems like a lot of engineering. I made this old school stitching pony that fits into a horse. I can replace the attachments for different work. If you like cutting threads, try wooden threads using a Beall Big Threader.
