This is my new vise design that I call STUB VISE .
The vise is of the auto quick release type as seen in most of my vises and made from spruce and hickory a 3/4” Acme screw leather pads on the chop and a maple handle with walnut end caps that will stay put in any desired position .The vise opens to 9” and has a clamping depth of 7 1/2”ond a chop with of 5 1/2” and opens and closes and clamps solid in a second .I may replace the handle with a hand wheel like this
I add a few more pictures here of all the positions I have tried and will likely add a rotating base next that is the reason I left the tenon at the bottom . Also a big Thank you to Paul /Shipwright for the marquetry logo .

Comments always welcome

Another nice contraption.

That looks like a handy vise to have.

I still don’t understand how you make the quick release feature.

Very nice vice, Klaus and so handy! I love it.

I made a 4” wide vise to put wider things in my 4” mill vice and it works much the same way. They are so versatile!!

Thanks for sharing…................Cheers, Jim

Klaus, you did a nice job on this vise. It should be handy in many applications. I like your idea of putting on a rotating base. I’ve had a need for that on a occasion or two so I used my machinist vise.
I’m upset you are using Benchy as a test. Was he trying to run away from it? LOL.

I have the feeling that this vise will turn into something very useful as simple as it is to build .

Thank you Ron
You are right I found out just putting it the different vises I have on my bench and with the rotary base it will be even better.

There is always a need for another way to clamp things as you know well .

Thanks Tony
Dreaming is scary sometimes but I do that when I am in the shop playing which is even more scary .
This one drove me crazy as I was experimenting with a different idea and switched to this which works well beyond expectation .
