Vises #5: Hi Vise - Main screw


This is part 5 in a 7 part series: Vises

Onto the full size Hi Vise

First up, make the main screw, basically make a rough octagon.

Round it off with the rounding plane.

Make a handle

Thread the screw to fit onto the handle.

And then just shape the handle to an octogen.

And thread the remainder of the screw (Leaving a gap for the garter).

Make the rod for the handle.

End caps

And that's it pretty much done.
I looked but didn't find the garter!

It's in the finish bit, I made it last in case I changed any other bits before that point.
