Project Information

You can find this tip published in the current issue of Woodcraft magazine by Master Tipster (since we have "Master Craftsman" as a term) Serge Delcos of Quebec, Canada.

Clamp this on the drill press for end boring or to a workbench vise as an auxiliary vise for holding a stock at an angle (hobby vise is $20 from Canadian Tire http://tinyurl.com/776qkyl or, for American woodworkers, from Woodcraft (#141673) or Rockler (#24006) or Harbor Freight (#95203)).

I didn't have any 3/4" plywood scrap big enough so I used a hardwood. I removed the cup on the hardwood first. I also added a pair of soft plywood jaws to the vise (rare earth magnets CA glued to the recessed holes drilled on the backs of the plywood scraps (1/2" x 2" x 6")). Those are the minor changes to the original tip.

A really great idea Chuck. Thank you for passing it along. I just happen to have spare vise very similar to the one pictured and that is perfect way to put it to work.

Thanks for the tip! I do like the use of the magnets for the jaw inserts.
