After seeing Eric's high vise
, I thought it was a great idea, so made a mini version.
The extended chop just sits in a normal face vice so it's quick to move.
Mostly planning on using it for small pieces, tool handles and the like.
Made with hand tools only - no metal in the build, although I may add a washer to the main vice to stop wear.
Made from whatever scraps I had lying around, so it's a bit of a mix of woods -construction lumber for the body, birch for the main screw, oak for the guide screw, willow for the bolts, beech for the chops and walnut for the garter and accents.
Usual picture blog of the build here.
