    I have yet to made one made, but see this post, where one was attached to a No.4 (not Kyle’s sleeve, but one identical to my idea where the original gripper lever is replaced. https://vandercookpress.info/vanderblog/2010/02/grippers/

    I realize this post is nearly 2 years old, but I was wondering if this idea was ever made to work? I am about to take delivery of a press and was wondering if this add-on was deemed a success.

    Every once in awhile I like to use my omnipotent powers for good.

    Yes, it may be a bit more complicated and expensive to fabricate, but the thing I like is that I could travel with it and use as a demo in workshops.

    So I admit I tend to over-engineer things, but this might be a nice, neat solution to this gripper problem.

    The first issue I’ve run across so far is finding tubing in this size, with very specific inner dimensions — my Grip Trip Levers seem to be exactly .25″x1″, i’m guessing that’s standard — any sources on that kind of thing, or simple, brilliant solutions that don’t involve milling out stock rod?

    Also, thx to Paul for his out-of-body posting for me.
