    There are very few threads that I miss on these forums, however just like C-bag this one somehow got by me.
    Excellent restoration
    TM 51 is correct for some untold reason most of the trades have mistakenly largely ignored many useful tools through out the ages.
    My dad was forever using many of my grand father's carpentry tools much to his dismay, when working on cars and trucks. Oil and grease or cleaning solvents do not go well with fine cabinetry tools
    I got caught using gramp's saw setting vice as a way to hold sheet metal once, well actually twice first and last at the same time.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    While I did not check every single one of the 511 tools in our Vises category, and of course excluding this restoration, I can't recall anyone ever building a homemade corner vise on this forum. Just sayin'.

    You're very welcome. It always makes me happy to help someone find something.

    Here's a fellow in Brazil who made his own version of an in-line vise...

    Homemade Wooden In Line Vise - by Alask @ LumberJocks.com ~ woodworking community

    It looks as if he started off making his own wooden screw but finally came to his creative senses and used a pipe clamp. Using the pipe clamp makes the construction of the vise nothing more than linear shaping of a few chunks of woods.

    I do think that, if I were building it, I would use more than a C-clamp to secure it to the bench. Two holes in the bench top and two half-inch shoulder bolts would be much more secure.

    Good find! We have Alask from LumberJocks profiled on this site, but we don't have his corner vise indexed: Homemade Tools built by Alask - HomemadeTools.net
