Continuing the last blog post.
Took the Leg vice face to my table saw (It has a channel that the fence runs in (fits perfect) and placed a dead wood under it and drilled out 1” Spaced holes… (that way cool old cold steel pin, is yep! An old 3/4” Allen wrench!)
The holes are for “expanding the jaw” for larger work..
This is it in place with a test fit of the “pin” you can use wood dowels also… or anything I suppose…
OK that works and the screw goes in. So (this is painful but ya need to do it) Set up the face and drop it into the leg hole to align it flush with the holes… Then you put it together yea all they way.. . and mark the holes for the bottom and top (for the top I liked it flowing N/S .vs E/W) Drill starter holes in the ASH at least , then undo them and loosly mount the inside leg plate. RESEMBLE and then tighten everything down.
So you reassemble and you have ! A SIDE vice!
Next time were gonna learn Crocheting..
