Block near knob

Postby Shane » Wed Jun 08, 2016 2:23 pm

I've got the plans and I'm collecting all the parts now. Great plans! Thanks!

I noticed in some of the designs of the vice, the block is on the front with the knob, and in some it isn't. In the versions where the block isn't in the front, did you just locate somewhere else, or build those parts into one of the stiles?

Took me a bit to figure out what you were referring to, but I think I got it now!

The block must exist on the front of the vise. It is what captures the nut and garter. It seems on my Sketchup drawing, the block somehow got left off. . . .grrrrrr. It is item 4 on the pdf plans.

No wonder I was not an illustrator in real life!

Thanks for pointing that out.

Makes perfect sense. Thanks!

I've got all the parts. I just bought some nice 8/4 hard maple today. If I wasn't working this weekend, I'd be making the vise.
