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.

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. 

Another option in the photo to the left is we have ready to go adapter pins.  Steve picked a middle of the road size for older pin plates that use a nail sized hole and made these pins that size.  Since the older vises the nail sized pin plates can rang a size was picked that should fit a lot of the older vises.   For a custom fit we can custom make the pins as described in the above paragraph if needed.
