    Wise vise bench.

    Made a simple improvement to my shop.

    Parts before welding and "decorative" drillings.

    Picture from building process:

    I used M16 trapezoid thread.
    Nut is weld to pipe with tig. All other welds with 1.6mm ok 73.15 welding rod.

    Nut would have been possible to weld with stick too, but i wanted to protect threads from splatters, choosed the easiest way in that point. I wanted to design my stool with minimal visible welds, no actual reason for that, just like it that way.


    Swivel stool is usefull specially when filing, its easy to keep your position optional.
    With regular stool you need to stand up and move stool, make those little "micro movements" time after time around the workpiece.

    Also it helps when welding pipes / tubes too. It allows welder to move around the workpiece, without need to move position of the hands.

    To get more use from the stool, it has an option to use it as a extra support too.

    Specially with curved pipes, you can adjust the height and angle, to get support to desired spot.
    When seat is opened, you can find two V-grooves under it.

    Edit:

    Forgot to mention this.

    Mounting holes ain't at the same level. This allows to bolt it trough the leg.

    Also, i mounted my worktable to the floor from every corner.
    Now it doesn't move... even if i want to.

    Thanks! That filing was just one example. Of course it helps when welding pipes / tubes too. It allows welder to move around the workpiece, without need to move position of the hands.

    And when seat is opened, it can be used to support long pipes.
    I planned to make similar to my workplace too, i bet it will be very usefull there, and i believe it will be copied somewhat fast to other workstations too. Simple solution, but i believe it will be very usefull for me, with many tasks.

    I like it, and the video perfectly details the builds. A seat supporting material is uber creative. And the slip pin makes it portable, just need a few mount plates.
    And I MUST find the wheels you cut and shape with. Slicing wheels [a few that don't] perform so well. So far, haven't gotten such great sanding wheels...

    Thanks buddy.

    I use these flap wheels:

    Lukas SLTT ZK 40 125mm Lasts long and removes material quickly. Also i like shape of them, straight edges and grinding surface.

    For cutting i use these 3M cubitron 2 cut off wheels:

    Have total respect for them. Best evidence of 'you get what you pay for'. Anything they produce performs well, and sets standards for other companies.
    I'll use the grade and specs for the flap wheels for US equivalents, especially squared edges.
    In your video's, they're always spinning, couldn't tell if bonded abrasive or what, never saw flap wheels work so aggressively. All of ours seem rounded off, so while they do sand/ grind, it's not what I'd call metal removal.
