    Truly an epic design and build. Off the charts versatility, especially the floating angle vise and the face torque adjustments. Silly question, but...Have you made V jaw inserts for round stock or are they even necessary?

    Thanks very much for sharing your Great design and build! A shop can never have enough vices or clamps!!

    The best work bench vise / clamping system I have ever seen. My vote for the tool of the week. Thanks for sharing.

    Unfreakingbelivablyawsome!!
    I model from HO thru 1/8 so I'll have to scale it down a tad.
    Plus the fact that my old barn / workshop floor would never live thru the life-sized version!!

    This is a great vice thanks.

    I am new here to this site and I am having a problem figuring things out. People post great homemade tools, pictures videos etc. My problem/question is where and how do I find the plans, measurements , drawings ect?

    It's really a forum for ideas, so not a lot of plans or details.
    Myself, I usually just dive in like a madman a build something (like this vise).
    Though some stuff I actually design intensively - but the 'plans' are understandable only by me because they are 'notes'.

    I bet some of the folks here would be glad to share things, even down to the minutest details - you can always gently ask.

    And, if you do ask and someone takes the time to document something, good manners requires you to actually build it and post your results.

    We are glad you are here! Share what you got and be a regular - lots will happen

    Warmest regards,

    one of those press plates assembly to put it all together. Thanks a lot, I was wondering how to build my table. It already weights 250lbs. & finish out to 400lbs
    with legs maybe 500lbs. good luck AL
