This is a simple mounting adapter that lets you securely attach a threaded device such as a magic arm to a table or desk using a readily available, inexpensive C-clamp.
Thread the mounting device into the adapter. Clamp the mounting adapter to the desk or table using the C-clamp.May 28, 2019 at 8:53 pm #9939
If you need to add a furniture-saver pad to the C-clamp, this [Parametric Wood Clamp Foot Pad](https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1067224) with the following OpenSCAD parameters:
prints quite well in PETG and is a snap-fit over the end of a Bessey 2″ C-clamp.

@SRv OMG this is so clever. Great hack! :clap::clap:May 28, 2019 at 8:53 pm #9941
We’ve had a few reports of these failing after being used for a while. To some degree, this is expected from a 3D printed part, but there is almost certainly an opportunity to optimize the design.
The print file and original Fusion 360 design file are available on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3541114
It would be great to have a maker look at how we can optimize the design and/or print setting to increase the durability of this part.
