    Integrated rod / bar bender to vise.

    Hi

    This project connects to my previous one.
    I have been planning " ultimate " vise, and these are kind of prototype's for that.

    My goal is to make sturdy vise with some useful integrations.

    Again, I'm speechless [textless?] Can't believe ability to cut so well exists, via 4" right angle grinder and death wheels. Yes, we call them that, cause we're not so good at it. Cross cut rod is one thing, lengthwise solids unearthly.
    Sincerely,

    ...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...

    Thanks buddy.

    Here angle grinder is very popular, or it was when i was younger.
    Hand held bandsaws, which seem to be popular in U.S, are somewhat rare. I have seen those in use only on videos.
    My opinion is that those are scary.

    Angle grinder was the first electric tool that i used, i think that its the reason why it feels so "familiar" for me.

    There is couple "tricks / rules " to use angle grinder safely for cutting.. i have planned many times to make a "how-to" video. But, i know that, there are so many people who thinks / believes opposite than i... weird myths and unsafe methods. ( like using flat bar as a guide ) That video could start a real ****strom.. if it ain't made proberly, with good explanations why and why not..
