I wouldn't want to have been in the way of that when it fell. That stump looks pretty flat, you could just square it off at the edges, drill some dog holes and use it where it is Al. When you're not using it, you could rent it out to the local amateur dramatic society and they could stage a musical on it it's so big.
Hi, my first post, can't figure out how to get photos posted. When I do I'll share photos of the bench I just about finished. It has twin leg vises. The right one has the traditional pin in the beam for easy removal if it will be in the way. The left one has a chain devise to keep the jaw parallel and it works great. Can someone give me some help with the photos? Thanks.
I was just reading about leg vises in the "Workbench Book" by Scott Landis, on page 45 there is a pic of a leg vise with the cast iron sissors used to keep the jaws parallel. Norm Vandal (the user) says it was getting a bit sloopy after a few months of use, but didn't effedt the work or use of it.
I've been complaining about the image interface for a while now. It's like playing whack-a-mole; I have to hit "insert" they quickly move my cursor to where I want the picture to go. If I insert a pic directly from the web, it's huge; but if I save it locally, it's normal sized; like me and Lysdexic, respectively.
