Hello fellows,at this time I would like to share a new project.

I love this vise from Lee Valley but for me in Brazil if I want to import it I’ll spend around $100 paying the clamp and all taxes.

So I decided to make one by myself spending less money.The main idea is using a pipe clamp and turn around 0° to 90° so I can reach both positions of vise quickly,You use the threads of pipe without trouble because you still having a lot of threads conecting the pipe and jaw.

It is simple,easy to do,cheap and efficient.

See step-by-step below.

I used only scrap wood to do it.

A piece of 3/4” pipe inserted at wood body.

The pipe is locked in place using screws.I added one more piece of wood to improve the back support at 0° position

A “C” clamp lock the body in place

Here a wooden pipe clamp

The other clamp at other position

Here turned 90°

Here the Pony pipe clamp

At 0°

Other position (turned 90°).I just change the position using the pipe threads

Here one more position (turned 45°)

This clamp will work too but you have to see it has an extra distance on base.

Thanks for attention

Nice work on the vise. and, as my old boss used to say, you appreciate it more if you make it yourself. You’ll love it every time you use it!!

Cheers, Jim
