“How can we use a simple tool to prevent two objects from separating?”

 

When doing engineering work, holding two discrete objects together might be a necessity. There are many ways to accomplish this, but how can one do it using a simple mechanical device? Well, luckily for us, engineers have already devised a tool known as a clamp. To make a clamp, simply create a solid “c” shape part, then drill a hole through the bottom curve, and then put an adjustable screw through the hole. If you put an object through the air gap of the “C” shape, and then adjust the screw to touch the object, you can apply enough pressure to entrap it in place.
