Sorry about the extreem simplicity of this jig. But it is the simpicity that makes this jig kinna special.
So I am working on the top for the dresser I am making and I had a hard time holding in my vise. At one point I had a 3/4” stick leaning into the vise to keep the thing from racking. I was going to build a little t-shaped space, but instaed I made this stack of plywood. Each shim is just under 1/4”. As most jigs, I made this out of scraps.
1. The Anti-racking spacer in action, with the top of the dresser also clamped in the same vice.
2. The anti-racking spacer finished.
3. I used loctite to keep the nut on the b olt. (I could not find a lock-nut this size)
4. I drilled the whole pack of shims at the same time.
5. The shims are 2” x 3” x 1/4”.
6. Hing this spacer where you can find it, but out of the way, right under the vise. (just added this a little after posting)
Below is the dresser I am working on:
