Thanks Paull
Have done the patent route on my dovetail drill bit and spent a ton of money on it but in the end had no success selling it .
There is not much point in a patent these days and a waste of money as far a I am concerned .
I built this just for fun and myself nothing else ,glad you enjoyed it .

Nothing short of brilliant Klaus. If I build a bench to replace my cabinet makers style bench I will surely consider building your vise design for it. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Very unique clamping system. I hear you loud and clear on the Patent stuff. Been there done that.
You could copyright & sell your plans though. At least you could make something for all your time and effort!

Great Job!!!!!

Very clever and innovative. Maybe partner up with a company like benchcrafted. I think a lot of people would love to buy it.

I agree with DavidBethune, copyrighting your plans and instruction is a good move. plus a $35 copyright beats the minimum 10,000 you could spend on a patent. You need a patent if you plan on selling the vice but only a copyright if you plan on selling your plans, however there is nothing wrong with just wanting to share, and thanks for doing so.

Great video, Kiefer…..you are ready for Hollywood! I gotta see if I can work something like this into the end of my modest workbench. It is so versatile and well thought out.
