I have a great little vise. I use it a ton (pun not intended)! The only problem with it is that it’s tiny—It opens to a little more than 1.5”
I wanted to buy a bigger vise (for my birthday), but the prices are INSANE!
As a “maker”, I don’t think it makes sense to pay $100 to $500+ on a vise, when it’s basically a big chunk of metal and a bolt. I know that I’m not the only one that thinks that.
I decided to build my own 6” (~16cm), with free reclaimed wood, and less than $5 worth of hardware.
After building it, I can tell you that I love this thing! It is way stronger that what I need! :) See the pictures above for more info
I DO NOT want to spam, But if anyone is interested in more information, And a full Tutorial on how to make it, You can click this link: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Wooden-6-Bench-Vise/
Please let me know if you have any questions (Oh, and how do can I reply to messages that’re posted here? All I see is the “quote” button…)
