Making a Saw Vise

11-16-2012 12:37 AM by nobuckle | 3 comments »

Some time ago I purchased a scroll saw off Craig’s List. The guy I bought it from also gave me some old hand saws. I got them home and cleaned them up a bit. Upon inspecting the teeth I realized that they needed some work. I decided to make a saw vise so I could sharpen them. I made a video of the techniques I used to build one that I found in the SketchUp 3D Warehouse. It’s made of some white oak that I had laying around. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to build one of your own....

Ye Old Vise

11-05-2012 04:01 AM by rance | 10 comments »

A good friend of mine came across this old vise. It was rusted a bit when he got it. We didn’t get any pictures of it in its original condition though. I recommended he use the molassas method of de-rusting it. He did that for a couple of weeks. We then took it to the car wash to spray it off and then dry it off. He scrubbed it a bit, then lubricated it a bit to loosen up a few joints and it works like a charm. I’ve never seen one of these quick-release mechanisms bu...

Workbench #6: Skirts & Vises

09-05-2012 02:00 AM by twobyfour16 | 3 comments »

So, the top needed skirts, obviously, so time to laminate again. This time, I used 3 pieces of 1×8 black walnut. This gave me a skirt that is 2 1/4” thick, and 6 3/4” wide – after cleaning up the edges. I glued up enough blanks for the front skirt, two end skirts, and chops for both vises. I did not get very many pictures of this process, as I had plenty of lamination pics earlier….I will say that these skirts were BEEFY! And heavy. So, now I had to figure...

V8 Degree wedge powered workbench #2: Building the Wagon Vices.

09-02-2012 01:37 AM by shipwright | 10 comments »

OK, lets get started. I will go through the build process in the same order that I built the bench and as a non-working concept of wedge power would have been a deal breaker, the first job was to build a wagon vice or two to make sure they would work. I was fortunate enough to find a small local mill that would sell me some really nice local arbutus (madrone in USA). This is about 50 fbm and I have about ten left over. After milling up some nice 1 7/8” stock and a bit of 3”...

V8 Degree wedge powered workbench #1: Some Features and Operational Videos.

08-31-2012 08:56 PM by shipwright | 24 comments »

While this is the beginning of my construction blog for the V8 Degree bench, I’m not actually going to get into the build just yet. There are a few more features that I didn’t want to clutter the project post with and I’ve added a couple of demo videos on the vices. I thought it would be best to start with a full view of the bench and its operational features first and get into the construction process in the next segment. This photo shows the dog hole inserts that hide a...

Tool Finds #2: A little blood and an awesome workbench.

08-22-2012 12:40 AM by Chris P | 10 comments »

Alright so here is the workbench that I bought at a estate sale on Friday but just picked up Yesterday. Its about 27”x68” with a quick release craftsman vise mounted on the end. So its friday morning and I’m scrambling to pull apart this workbench I just bought just to take the top with me; I’m scrambling because in about 2 hours I have to go to the rehearsal for my wedding and then host our rehearsal dinner. But while chiseling off some glue around a square headed ...

Saw and plane restoration #1: New aquisitions - restore or not? Input wanted.

06-08-2012 05:34 PM by Tokolosi | 8 comments »

I went to an estate sale the other day and some tools managed to attach themselves to me somehow. I wjust wanted to browse around but these things jumped up from the well worn workbench in the garage and clung to me. Not being someone to cause a scene I just bought them. So now I got them (drat ;-)) I’d love to put them back in use. First up is a Abernathy Tool & Vise Co. woodworking vise. This sucker was still attached to the bench when I got it and the only tool I was able to u...

Moxon bench #4: thinking about the Moxon vise...

04-28-2012 07:44 PM by John | 1 comment »

I hav had these power press bar clamps for over a decade forgotten in a bin and used them for the first time today. they are nice! nicest pipe clamp I’ve ever used. what a shame they were discontinued after Irwin bought the company. (aside: I’m not happy with Irwin, they’ve ruined Marples chisels) I’m wondering if I can use these to make a Moxon vise? here’s a quick sketch to be followed with a slow sketchup…

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #3: A look under her skirt....

04-01-2012 01:49 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 11 comments »

I got your attention with that title, so here’s the picture….. I began to cut the hole for the vise two nights ago, last night I actually got it mounted. I had to use 3 layers of plywood to get the clearance I needed to mount it. (I’ll try and get a picture of that when I’m under the bench again. I’m not picking it up again if I can help it.) I had my 10 year old nephew help me mount it and here are the results… I have one coat of BLO ...
