    Made a stand for my post vise.

    Made this stand out of 3/8" plate and a piece of 4" black pipe.

    The base has a piece of horse stall mat glued under it. I place one foot on the base at all times when torking it down. No problems to date. I use it nearly every day I'm in the shop.

    I am getting a 3/4" plate 24" in diameter for my base for the one I am in the process of building. I will use some 6" steel channel for the up-right, and 3/8 for the top plate. I was given a post vise with 6" jaws recently, in great shape!

    Good tip on the horse mat. And yeah, I would be putting a foot on it for stability too. Thanks.
