    A wooden vise for instrument making

    I didn't look too far for inspiration, but I made this one (nearly) entirely of wood, except the slides and the screw.



    All the details on my site, here :

    La Belle Note - Instrument making vise

    Funny, no ? But it is very usable in practice, I use it every day.

    The interest of this kind of vise, for those who are not familiar with, it's the soft jaws that allow to grip even on a finished piece, and the fact that the jaws are not parallel, they can rotate and follow the geometry of the piece.
    The opening also, is quite deep.
    Cheers !
    Cheers !
