Well it has been a while but I went thru some crappy times medically but it is over and life goes on !!!!
Here are a couple of videos that I made and what I am trying to show is the piece by piece construction of my V2 leg vise . I am a little slow building the vise at the moment but I am nearing completion .

I posted two videos on you tube (part 1 and 2 ) with a third part to come in a few days .

It’s Super Klaus! Worried about you. I’m guessing you got a new motor for your saw???? Missed you inspiring presence.

Will the 3rd installment show the vise and the bench? You must have a great supplier for lumber, but it is Canada after all.

Hi Klaus… Good to see you back!

Yes… Part 1 had me scratching my head to figure out what you were doing… UNTIL I started watching Part 2… then, it became very clear!

You actually the whole end of the bench for the complete Leg Vise Housing!! Which now makes good sense!!

Thank you very much… really looks GOOD & COOL!

Hi Klaus. I quickly checked out the videos and I like what I see. When I get back from sunny Florida I will review it deeper. Glad to see you and hope things are better.
