« Part 3: Woodpecker's Router Table Plate Part 4 of Sketchup Resources series Part 5: Incra 17" LS Positioner System »

Now that I received the tail vises for my workbench, I have modeled them in Sketchup so that I can play around with it for a more precise location and drilling plans before I have to physically deal with the heavy top material.

This model is design to be light and fast, and as such does not go into vast details such as screw spirals etc. Instead it is designed to be used for measurements and sizing, both in terms of the actual hardware measurements and shapes, and screw hole locations.

Feel free to download and use this in your upcoming Sketchup projects and designs.

Peace,
Sharon.

Thanks.

sIKE- I think I’m going to keep this one as is as the purpose of it has been achieved. I will however update my workbench drawing with this new model so that I can see more clearely how to size things around it to fit perfectly.

Thanks AaronK. once you’re signed to your sketchup/warehouse account and see a model, there are 2 buttons under the model view. one is “link” which will give you the URL for your model that you can place someplace else to link to your model (text only). the other is “Include” which will give you a snipplet of code that you can add elsewhere, this is what I’m using and it shows you an image of the model plus a link to it on sketchups’ 3dwarehouse.
