    Vertical Vise

    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.

    I use lock tight for the set screw to keep the screw in place.

    Grooves?

    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?

    I love multipurpose, space-saving tools. That vise would be a great addition to my little shop.
