    Default New kind of metal vise.

    Hi.

    This is my idea about the "ultimate" vise.

    There is so many different needs for different needs. There is no way to make one vise that could fill needs of the machinist to blacksmith.

    I just designeg this to improve regular bench vise on the home workshop. It can be used when you want to clamp something without leaving marks to it, or with higher force when it doesn't matter if workpiece gets scratched or not.

    It allows to change different "tooling' for to make bends, clamp round / square tubings, ring rollers.. etc. To allow easier / faster upgrade & different uses.

    It would have made video too long to show all possibilities.
    That's why part 2 comes later, of course some possibilities are the ones that needs to be imagined by the viewer itself.

    I have seen so many "ultimate" welding tables & workbenches.. none of them have been suitable to my needs. So, i think there's no way to make anykind of "ultimate" anything that would be perfect for every user.

    Its a quick action vise, but still strong.
    Also it can be used with a jack.

    This build continues with a electric hydraulic jack, and
    with a set if different adds, ring roller, pipe bender.. etc.

    You may be interested in testing just how strong your vice is

    Hmm...

    I can make bends with it, without need to use hammer...
    So i really don't see any reason why i would need to smash it it with a sledge hammer?

    Made a longer handle.

    I had no suitable axle when i made the original one.

    It was made with the same way.

    12mm axle, weld a piece of pipe to the other end. And grind weld smooth.

    Another end is "turned" with a drill and angle grinder.
    ( Like seen on the video )

    Rubber plug with 6mm hole.
    Shape of the axle locks it on its place.
    ( Also, very tight fit )

    Nice feeling for the fingers / palm in use.
