Here's some 3.25" OD extinguishers I found online. Please note that I HAVE NOT PHYSICALLY VERIFIED THESE DIMENSIONS!!

However, the 3.25" OD dimension is listed along with the extinguisher on the websites that I found them on. I could have sworn that I had seen earlier today that the H3R brand had a 3.25" OD but they apparently do not.

I would rather have the most common size. Only makes sense to go with the most standard size.

I'm back in the garage today fabricating another clamp using all of the dimensions & specs from the new design so that I can validate it before pulling the trigger. We're getting very close here, but I'm still waiting on a final quote on the casting. I've talked to the foundry a few times in the last week and I'm comfortable enough now to say that the initial price will be about $55. I didn't quite get down to the $50 dollar mark that I know many were hoping for, but I'm sure you guys can understand and I wouldn't imagine that $5 more dollars would really make a difference in your decision to buy if you were serious about it in the first place. As I said before, I've only added a little bit into the cost for my time and labor to assemble & test the mounts, which doesn't add up to much.

It's taken a lot of work, and hours, to get to this point in the process, and considering the fact that I've basically done all of the design and planning on this project for free (since I am not trying to recover my investment thus far in the cost of the parts I sell) I hope you will continue to be patient in waiting for all of this to come to fruition.

Thanks again everyone,

Brian T.

Brian, take your time and get it right the first time. If it ends up costing a lil bit more, so be it Make it a solid quality piece. We'll support that. Designed and made in the USA by the people for the people. Love it.

If not to late and work with common size, I'd like to jump on the list for one as well.

Thanks

I've finished the new clamp based on the new design specifications which has a few tweaks to it. The main ones being that the clamp is now 1/4" thick with rounded ends on them making it much more durable than my initial prototype. Also, the base has a lower profile and a larger footprint to give it a more solid base when being bolted to a flat surface. Some of the other changes are very subtle and were simply to reduce the manufacturing costs as long as it didn't affect the durability or functionality of the mount.

I also visited with a spring manufacturer here in the Denver area yesterday and they were excited about helping us with designing a custom spring for the clamp. They recommended that I come down to their facility while they set up their machine to run a stainless steel spring specifically for this clamp. They want me to be there so we can tweak the parameters of the spring and test them in the clamp until we feel that we have the perfect spring for the application. I thought this was pretty cool of them, but unfortunately it will add a buck or two to the overall cost, but I think it will be worth it since the spring is the most critical piece of hardware in the clamp.

I also did some testing this evening to see how much force is required to extract the extinguisher from the clamp and found that this design requires ~29lbs of force, or ~6.5Gs. That is based on my extinguisher that I'm using which weighs about 4.5lbs. I don't have a scale that is accurate enough to get too specific, but this should give you a good idea of how well it holds onto the extinguisher. I'm hoping that we can improve on this even more with a custom spring.

Here's a couple of pics from the fabrication over the last few days as well as the finished part and another quick video of the operation. You can ignore the strap on the back of it, I just put it there to have something to hold onto when I pull the extinguisher out of the clamp.
