I have a little mom and pop’s coffee house about a mile from my house that I frequent fairly often. I try to make it once a week to sit down, enjoy a cup of coffee and read a book for a while. I meet a gentleman who is retired and and now does blacksmith work in his spare time. A while back he said he had a couple of vises he wasn’t using and offered them to me. I told him I would love to take a look at them but my shop budget was tight so it would be a while.
Since I began this bookcase job, I have been to busy to get to the coffee shop and talk with my friend. A couple of days ago I receive a email saying that he left me a package at the coffee shop and the next time I was out and about to swing by and ask the owner for it.
I was able to stop by for a moment and pick it up yesterday. The package contained a small (4” Maybe) metal vise. It has a small anvil on one side that would be great to bend copper or something similar for a box. It also contained a brand new Vunder Vise.
Now I have never heard of these vises before, nor have I used anything quite like it. Since the only vise I have in my shop is a F clamp I figure it will see a lot of use. The vise it’s self looks sturdy and well made and engineered. Once I get it set up and try it out I will get some pics of it up and maybe a review. I hope to get it set up next week after I install the bookcases this weekend. I did take a quick pic of the manual.
Has anyone of you guys seen or used or even have one of these. If so how well do they work?
