e-Zee (Little) Steam Engines: CNC Pliers
This site contains instructions on how to build a pair of CNC pliers. These pages are designed to provide free plans, ideas, and inspiration to would-be engineers, science/technical students and steam engine enthusiasts. Our goal is to draw folks into the area of mechanical engineering by showcasing projects that are easy to build and won't scare off the neophyte. The audience for this web site could include: hobbyists, inventors, tinkers, engineers, crafters, group leaders (like Scout leaders or after school clubs), junior/senior high school teachers (especially in the science, vocational or technology areas), community college instructors (again, in the science and tech areas) and undergraduate engineering instructors. The designs shown (mostly) emphasis simple construction. Several can be built using basic hand tools and an electric hand drill and most use easy-to-get materials (one engine uses a wood base, a wood main bearing and a coat hanger wire crankshaft).
