« Part 7: What is your Vice ? - Wilton Universal Turret Vise Part 8 of work bench series Part 9: Frame for drawers and panels »

I bought an old leg vice on ebay last year to make this end vise

glued 2 halves to make the head

drilled out for the vise nut

and for the washer in the head

wood chips in my coffe, what could be better then that?

Opposite of the main vise screw is a linear motion bearingbBushing

a lot of drilling


In the end

Looking really good!
How does it run?
I have bought two vintage French leg wises, one I’m planing to use as a end wise, so this came in really handy.
Best thoughts,
