    Shortened bench vise

    I milled the bottom off a second hand 2-1/2Ē swiveling clamp on bench vise to make it more like ones Iíve admired in old catalogs.

    The wider angle iron base makes it easy to clamp where I want to use it. The casting just attaches to that with a couple bolts.

    Itís still a crappy portable vise but I donít mind using it now, and for small stuff itís alright how little the front jaw sticks out from the edge of the table.
