Toolmonger Johnsen Frameworks posted this awesome tool to the Flickr pool, and it looks like a great way to hold an odd-shaped workpiece. Called the SEVO vise, it’s a Swedish-made device consisting of three plates — flat on one side and rounded on the other — each attached to a swivel point. By rotating the plates into various positions you can create almost infinite grip shapes.

Interesting in knowing more about the SEVO? Check out the link below to Johnsen Frameworks’ Flickr page where you’ll find scans of a number of articles about the vise, including one from a 1951 issue of Popular Science. And don’t be shy: Add pix of your own unusual and useful tools. We’ll be watching!
