« Part 6: again with the wheels?! Part 7 of Torsion Box Workbench - aka - my first bench series Part 8: Stuck on Wheels. »

I’m in the home stretch as of now – I changed my mind and decided that the front vise was a good idea. Got all of those pieces cut and assembled, now I’m just having to figure out how to shave the handscrew. Guess I’m going to have to dig out the straight bit and see if my incremental settings work. Picture to follow!

now back from the evening walk and having a chance to think more on this – do you guys have a better way of finding the angle that second block to hold the clamp should be at? I did the best I could but it’s still off towards the back enough. I’m hoping the foil tape they say to use to shim it will help, I’m just not quite there and hoping this will still work out for me. Guess one hurdle at a time :) better get the clamp shaved first :D
