    My new bench vise that I built

    This vise is the center of all my hand-working activities.
    It lives on the end of my welding bench and is used for a zillion things.

    What an amazingly well thought out clamping system! Sure inspired me.

    Thanks!

    That is the most thought out clamping system I have ever seen, As a maker of things myself I know how many hours you can wrap up in a project, I can't even begin to even take a guess as to how many hours you spent making this awesome tool, excellent work and a great demonstration, thank you for sharing with us.

    Charles, this was very well thought out and executed. I can imagine that it gets used all the time.

    This is a wonderfully brilliant idea. Are those plates hardened? Any advice as to where a guy could get a used set like that? I need to build one of those. You could add a little sheet metal brake (or heavier ga steel.) I have some 1”-4tpi acme leadscrew that would be great for something like that! Thank you for sharing!

    I'm rarely genuflect. But you've created something that walks on water.

    Now I am kicking myself for not grabbing some old die sets with 1 1/4 posts. Excellent idea and build.
