Saw vise box version
quick and clean

Having bought a few old saws I needed a saw sharpening vise, the choice was the box version, since this one is easy to make and store away when not in use.

This post is from the blog:

1. Saw vise on the bench with a blade in.
2. Pieces for the project.
3. Hinges of leather.
4. The box vise.
5. Saw blade in place for sharpening.
6. No excuses…

Hope this can inspire others to make their own tools and clamps.

Thanks for the comments.
Woodwrecker, thanks.
Joe, smiles.
Swirt, that’s a cheap and easy to make one at least. ;-)
Jim, yes that was the aim and it seems to do a fine job, even I did not test it a lot.
