Found the plans for this in Shopnotes. It’s a great add on for my Roubo Workbench in holding those small pieces. Red Oak, Acme screw. I can’t say enough about how useful this thing is. The jaws of the vise can be made custom to fit your piece, such as a groove to hold circular stock or made from cork or leather to keep your work from being scratched.

Construction looks really sharp, Joel. How is the vise held on the workbench? What are some of the physical dimensions?

Hi Don. Here is the link from Shopnotes on this design.

Holding it to my bench is a very large bolt that fits right into one of the dog holes. Easily added or removed to the bench.
