In 2016 I bought a pattern makers vise and wasn’t alwas happy that my stuff was clamped between the metal jaws. For that reason I have made some extension jaws and the pictures below tells the further story. On the last pictures you can see why this contribution is called recycling.

Lovely vise. The jaw inserts look like a great addition.

Added to favorites because I like the idea of the holes in the top of the vise for the cams. I believe I’ll be doing something like that to my existing vise soon.

A really great vise Jan made even better with some innovative thinking on your part! Not a small thing considering what a technical marvel those pattern making vises are.
