I’ve been writing about this in my blog. In the Auxillary Workbench Series.

I installed the vice and took it for a test drive. I was a little dissapointed with the amount of racking I got with this vice, but I compensate for putting a like thickness board opposit to it. I could have made the vice face shorter, but I like the full lengh look on this little bench.

The test drive of cutting some tails in walnut was 100% success.

Thanks for looking!

Wayne, no dogs until I do something with it that needs dogs. Then I’ll drill them. You’re dog-obsessed! LOL

Nice bench. Good job. Do you store it on top of the bench or somewhere else.

Karson, there is room directly under where it currently sits. I think it will go there but it’s currently a tool without a permanent home.

It works pretty good, Top. I’ll have to work on the vice a bit as it slips a smidgen more than I care for it to. I might pad it with something. Thanks for the comment.

I Mot :
Neat idea.
I wonder if you could use some cork on the vice faces?

Cool! I like the idea of that huge vise. Does it tend to rack quite a bit, or is it a dual-drive system?

It racks a bit, Al, but if using a narrow board, I put piece of similar thickness scrap on the other side of the vise at the same time. I just put screw or brad through it as a hook so I don’t have to try and hold two pieces and turn the screw. The bench works for it’s intended use, quite well, but the vice is not ideal, though functional.
