    I've seen a number of interesting projects lately that make use of a scissors jack. Never thought to use one for a vise type contraption. Time to go to the junkyard.

    Great idea pursang! Looks very stable. Quicker and safer than using sawhorses. How tall is the vise btw?

    Thanks Altair, I think my old sawhorse is pretty much retired now the stationary and moving 2"x6"s are both 36" tall.
