I decided that I liked the idea of a leg vice. But when I saw that peg board at the bottom I wasn’t impressed. I could imagine having to bend over to set and reset that thing and got a back-ache just thinking about it. Not to mention a headache every time I went to change the setting which puts ones head very close to some very hard items. I decided that there had to be a better way.
This is what I came up with. A very simple wedge. Kick one side to set , and the other to release. No bending over, no fuss, no muss.
This is just one variation that i’m working on. But my view is that simple is best, as most engineers would agree. Not sure that the split board will work well and I’ve got a simpler idea in mind for the final version.
