Making A Wooden Vise.
The vise is made almost completely out of solid pine. The jaw pads & handle are maple.
The jaws are 8″ wide and the vise opens nearly 7″
The lead screw is a leveling leg for a scaffold and is about 1-1/4″ thick solid steel.
I clear coated the finished vise with oil based polyurethane and bolted it down to my workbench with 3/8″ lag bolts.
The video is made up of nearly 200 clips, filmed over three days. It shows all of the important parts of the build in a very concise package. There is no narration, since to do so would turn this 12 minute movie into a three or four part miniseries.
