    This vise is in great condition. I inherited it from my grandpa who I don't think ever installed it. I had it installed for a while before moving shops but never used it much. All the metal and japaning looks great.
    $0 USD
  2. Face Farame Clamps

    My wife has asked me why I get all those woodworking and tool catalogs when we don't have any money to buy the stuff in them. I smile knowingly and tell her that I get ideas for things that I can make to make things easier for me to make! This always makes her give me the look! You all know that...
  3. Gun Vise

    I had a request to post this gun vise. This was a self thought design, so no plans. If the pictures are not self explanatory, feel free to ask any questions. I built this about 20 years ago. I've built several others like it, some completely reverse for my left handed son and if you wanted it...
  4. Violin bow re-hairing vise

    Rather than needlessly spend money, I decided to build a vise with which to learn how to re-hair violin bows. Believe it or not, the horse hair which causes the violin to make sound wears out after some time and must be replaced. It's a lot easier to work on such an object when it is held still...
  5. Cheap, Strong, Easy Sliding Moxon Vise

    I've wanted a decent vise setup for a long time now but without a work surface it was pointless. Now that I have a work table I looked at my options. An under mount vise wouldn't work because my table top isn't supported all the way around. A moxon vise would work but the nice hardware kits...
  6. Roubo Workbench (Hand tools Only)

    In my attempt to move over to a hand tool lifestyle, I decided to upgrade my workbench to a Roubo, since they are all the rage. This is Roy Underhill's version. I don't have his book, so I had to redesign it to fit what I remember it as, keeping his basic vision as a base to work off of. I biult...

  8. Basement Wood Rack

    A few weeks ago I completed this wood rack as I need somewhere to put about 400 bd ft. of red oak that I had setting in my son's trailer. I didn't think to take any pictures of it until afterwards. I had looked at several of the great wood racks that some of you LJs had posted. I didn't have...
  9. Moxon Twin Screw Vise - Budget Version

    I finally broke down and decided to buy a real vise. Then, I remembered the Benchcrafted Moxon Vise. The store had one, but I didn't have $300 for something that excels at squeezing real tight. $83 and a new friend at Woodcraft later, I had a tap/thread kit, some 8/4 popular and a hardwood...
  10. Anti-racking vise spacer

    Sorry about the extreem simplicity of this jig. But it is the simpicity that makes this jig kinna special. So I am working on the top for the dresser I am making and I had a hard time holding in my vise. At one point I had a 3/4" stick leaning into the vise to keep the thing from racking. I was...
  11. Oak Wood Working Vise

    This is a Vise a guy on Youtube made and provides plans for. His name is John Heisz and he really does some out of the box thinking. Look him up, you'll like what you see. I am not good with following plans, i'm more of a visual person. I've always been able to build things by looking at pics...
  12. Shop Vac Dust Cyclone

    I know it's been done to death but thought I'd post my version of the cyclone here too just in case it helps someone else. I used pics, plans and comments from a combination of jcoulam, SimonSKL, Billp & CyBorge (thanks guys!) because I came across my own challenges with finding materials...
  13. Maple Left-Handed Workbench w/ Emmert Patternmaker's Vise

    I would like to share one of my latest projects that I can finally say is finished. Believe it or not, I only have around $350 in this workbench. The majority of the construction took maybe 2 months (working a couple days per week on average) and mounting the Emmert took a full day and a half...
  14. Workmate 550 Upgrade

    My Workmate 550 was struggling with a warped and cracked top so it's been relegated to a dark shop corner for almost 10 years. I finally dug it out and re-topped it with a pine 2×8 after seeing John Taylor's video. I couldn't be happier! And with judicious application of a file all the...
  15. New drawers for my Workbench

    I finally decided how to use the space under my workbench. New drawers! I picked up three sheet of plywood at the HD's A sheet of 3/4" for the box's, a sheet of 1/2" for the drawers and a sheet of birch 1/4" for the drawer bottoms. The runners are from ebay Soft close hydraulic full extension...
  16. STUB VISE

    This is my new vise design that I call STUB VISE . The vise is of the auto quick release type as seen in most of my vises and made from spruce and hickory a 3/4" Acme screw leather pads on the chop and a maple handle with walnut end caps that will stay put in any desired position .The vise...
  17. KIEFER STUBY VISE VIDEO

    I post the Kiefer stub vise video here so everyone can find it and hope that it's OK .
  18. Jet Mortiser with a XY Vise Mod!

    I made this modification to my Mortiser some time ago and it really has made the procedure far more repeatable, easier, faster, and safer. I was tired of the really bad fence and stop that came with the Jet so I started doing some homework (back in the days before the internet and you had to go...
  19. Maple Moxon Vise and Bench Hanger

    One of my Christmas presents this year was a BenchCrafted Moxon Vise hardware kit. I've been travelling quite a bit for work so I just finished putting it all together - but man I love this thing. I used Hard Maple with mahogany accents. The basic design is similar to the base plans that come...
  20. Centennial Vise Restoration

    I bought and restored this honey of an antique vise to use on the workbench I'm working on, other than many many hours of patiently degreasing, derusting, and otherwise fiddling with this big heavy lady there's not much to tell. The end result slides smoothly, engages when it ought to, and...
