Portable VISE

Postby planecrazzzy » Sun Jun 04, 2017 7:56 pm

'
This is my Portable Vise...
I made it about thirty years ago.
The Legs fold in like a tri-pod...

It's VERY HANDY...

I can move it easy... and Also make a table out of it.
I have Aluminum and steel table tops for it.

It's easy to move it somewhere to make a mess.
Or a clean area to work on in the shop...

Oh yeah... and it's a Vise.

PS It's a 4" vise

Sometimes you just have to take the leap
and build your wings on the way down...

The one I use in the shop is heavier.
It's a 6 inch Vise
It's still nice to be able to move it.
I tip it and roll it...

The Base is THICK... it's stable.

and I have a Table top for it also.
