i love trying new things but often run into "i can't afford that new tool".
i watched a lot of videos on how to make a bench vise but, working in a 10 x 10 shop with only 28" between my work bench and the table saw i needed something i could store in the rafters when not in use.
this is working great.
i started with a 23" piece of hardwood and drilled 5 holes in it. then using it as a guide drilled holes in the side of my bench.
now when i need my bench vise i screw the board in place.
and use bar clamps to hold wood in place.
always open to learn new things.
