Fileklemme / European saw vise
quick and clean

Having a Scandinavian work bench, I thought it would be right to have a fileklemme / the type of saw vise that was traditionally used in Denmark.

This post is from the blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/94098


Pictures:
1. Fileklemmer on the bench.
2. Pieces for the project.
3. Jaws.
4. Self opening.
5. Medium size.
6. Small size.

Hope this can inspire others to make their own tools.

Best thoughts,

MaFe

I had not seen one of these before, but it makes good sense. It reminds me of a stitching vise for leatherwork. I’ll have to print this as a reminder for future additions when I get my shop properly set up.
Thanks Mads.

I could use something like this for a logging saw I found. Really a nice set up.

Nice job Mads. Are you finally going to put a file to your saws? :o)

Hi guys,
Thanks for all the comments, smile here, time is short these days, seems to run like sand between my fingers, but I enjoy as I go.
Druid, yes it can be used for leather also. I did post a stitching pony here and have one more I will like to show you gus.
Joe, thanks (in many levels).
Jim, smiles.
Doubledd, any size will be possible, will see if I can find time to post a big old one I got.
majuvla, that’s how we did it here for as long as I have lived. Thanks.
Woodwrecker, that makes me happy thanks, learning and sharing learning is what this is all about.
peteg, smiles.
Gerardo, thank you back, quick and clean.
Brit, to be honest I did not file more than one saw and that was only a touch up on the teeth… Seems like time keeps being spend on other things and the saws are sharp, so they don’t scream for help now…
