    Big Bench Vice out of scrap

    This is the second bench vice I made out of scrap I had lying arround in the shed. Used a heavy channel cut in half, then topped with a 10mm plate, pieces of 8-16mm flat plate welded together for the body and a screw turned from a section of trailer axle, opening width is about 30cm. Nut also made from some square axle steel. Handle from 19mm stainless rod.

    amazing vise!

    It sure looks like a high quality cast steel vise to me. Excellent work!

    Congratulations on a very fine project.
