« Part 3: installing the rail to bench Part 4 of Wagon Vise series Part 5: machinining the threaded rod and dog base »

here im using the same tried method of laying out your layout.

after laying out my desired size i go back to the mill and start machining all the part

then i pare up a set of blocks to be drilled and tap


then i drill the other half of the block to accommodate the thru hole size of the bolt


then i grab some bolts and pair them up again to be machine
for the bushing that will hold the acme screw.

then mark the center for the hole

then test fit the bushing

then back to the mill to machine the slot for the rail.

now i can head home and install this to rail and also hope fully i can finish the bench.
stay tuned. thanks for stopping by.

August, you have great skills and the knowledge to put it together. What are you going to make for a handle?

^LOL
I don’t have knowledge I have what you call luck thanks for kind words

Well you see I have got that far yet
I’m a wierd woodworker
I love this have the 2 leg vise the one to the right is nice so when I’m sawing something my saw will clear it.
So for the handle to be there it will be scary.
So what I’m thinking is a magnetic system
To were I can take it off quick????
Something like the knee crank on the bridgeport.
I guess

how about a pneumatic ram that mounts under the bench, push a button, it opens…push again it closes.
