You may remember a post several weeks ago, where I posted a photo of the main parts of a vintage vice I found at the flea market. Well, here's the finished product attached to the workbench in my shop.
The main jaw and tightening screw and block were the only pieces I bought, so, I had to fabricate the other necessary parts. A scrap piece of oak; a steel rod left over from another project; spare wood knob from an amp build served as the cap for the rod; a small caster reclaimed and fabricated to make a guide block for the adjustment slide, and the project was nearly complete.
It took a little fooling around with installation on the existing bench, but it works. And, it is just right for holding necks and bodies during the shaping and finishing process.
A helluva $5 investment.
