Some people asked for pics of the front vise. This is all i have, hope its enough to give someone ideas or helps out.
This was not made from plans, which is why the vise goes right through the last dog holes. (hey- it wasnt easy to visualize or draw out.)
I wanted that vise to be as close to the end as possible. BUT that was as close to the end as i could get, cause the legs are in the way.
And 3 things would have happened if i moved the vise down the bench any more:
1- the vise jaw board would be way to long, and then unstable.
2- I would have still lost 2 dog holes.
3- i didnt want to “loose” and more room from the front(it would be in the way)
Height wise- the only way to have it sit in the middle of apron was to bury it some into the bottom of the bench top.
Well here it is. Hope it help the bench builders.
