Vertical Vise, Made from CRS / HRS and a handle from Grizzly machines. If you make one of these be sure to put a grub screw in the small block to hold the ram screw in the hole.

Thanks, you have opened my eyes to the concept of a vertical vise.
Interesting build, captain. As Nadogail said, thanks for the idea.
Their are a number of uses for this vice.
1. mandrel, for forming sheet metal. 2. Welding round stock holder 3. Welding hex stock holding.
I use lock tight for the set screw to keep the screw in place.

I noticed one version has a slotted base & block, and the other one doesn't. I'd think the slots would often be handy, and rarely a problem. Did you make 2 versions, or did you add the slots as an upgrade?
Hi, GlennR Yes you caught me this was a 3 day build in progress, I finished the slots on the Mill today....

I love multipurpose, space-saving tools. That vise would be a great addition to my little shop.
Yes and not to difficult to make...:O)
