While I’ve been busy in the shop, I haven’t posted anything in a while.
Here’s a vise rack stop that I made this morning. I took some scrap mahogany that I’d glued up for some table legs and rounded one end w/ a 3/4” round-over bit on the router, then cut them down to 3/16” (I was aiming for 1/8”, but took the wrong reading on my measure. I may plane them down to 1/8” some day if I really get bored ….) on the table saw. Used a brass nut from a spare obtained from a toilet repair kit, a washer and nut, and a run through the drill press to get the hole centered, and voila! A vise rack stop!. Just a pass or two over both sides with the block plane to smooth any edges, and that’s all she wrote.
The second picture shows the stop in action. Handy little tool, and easy to put together.
As a note, I’ve not locked the nut onto the bolt, just in case I get that wild hair.
