    Made in Garage's Tools

    Homemade Vise

    Hello all,
    I would like to introduce you to my first project, which is a vise on a thrust bearing. The trapezoidal screw comes from a car jack that lied in the garage like most of the materials used for the project. So the only costs I've incurred are a dozen electrodes and a metal cutting disc.

    Amazing what a smart person can do with a simple welder, square and power drill.
    Nicely done!

    great job, but when mounting a general purpose vise the rear stationary jaw should extend at least an inch in front of the table its mounted on so u can clamp long items.
