Machinist Vise Bench Hook..

Not even sure if this is worthy of a project post but here goes..

I needed a way to attach and/or remove my 4 1/2” Machinist Vise to my new workbench. I actually still use this vise quite a bit when working with brass and other metals involved in other projects and till now it has just been floating around on the floor which makes working with it a pain.

This is made of a red oak cut off from my bench planed smooth and the corners “broke” with my small round over plane. Holes were drilled than tapped for the mounting bolts. It fits nice and secure between my wagon vise and a bench dog and the back held with a holdfast.

The last pic shows it secured to my saw bench for when I need to use it with my angle grinder (don’t want all that metal dust on my bench).

This should be the first of many bench accessories I have planned. This took me all of about an hour to put together.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks Moke. It has been a long time coming getting this vise secured down to something again.

I agree with moke, it will be great for sharpening the card scraper as well.
Thanks

Thanks guys! It has already been put to use and it performs beautifully. I hadn’t even though of the card scraper blades! Great idea!

Excellent idea. I use my metal vice a lot to. Mine is permanently mounted on my sharpening bench now.

I use mine all the time also. I just bolted it to my work bench. (oops!, probably not in the woodworker handbook)

I like your solution. Very clean…................
