Bench vise spacer
get a grip man…
When you clamp in the vise and want a even pressure, you need a spacer, I usually had a handful of little wood pieces in in the workbench tray, but one day I stood and looked and some old wooden blinds, I could imagine a better way that would be more handy and take less searching for the right piece.
1. The spacer after dye and wax.
2. In use.
3. A stack of spacers, getting a hole..
4. Some nice brass screws, just for the pleasure, knurled for easy use.
5. Cut to even size.
6. Shape for looks and touch.
I made the size so I can store it inside the bench, like this it is right at hand when needed.
Now clamping in the vise are faster and with a smile.
Hope this can inspire,
