In this review, the author will show you how to make a multifunctional bench vise that will be useful in the garage and home workshop. The main feature of a homemade vise for versatility.
You can use them as a classic Vice, but they are able to rotate around its axis, which is very convenient, for example, when cutting round pipes.
You can also set the vise on the side of the base (in vertical or horizontal plane), and put them at different angles.
In General, it is possible to twist and twirl bench vise as you like, choosing a suitable position to work.
You may be interested in another useful art project for workshop: belt sander stanochek, which can be assembled by hand from the working motor from a washing machine.
For the manufacture of bench Vice, the author uses the blank sheet metal, round tube, channel, nuts and bolts. Also you will need screw and driver.
The first thing you need to make two connections of round tubes. Take a pipe of suitable diameter and drilled out two holes. After that, cut off from her two piece.
Next, cut from the pipe three more details. Now you will need to cook all the blanks, and the result should be two connections.
Drill holes in them and weld the nuts. Into the nuts and screw the bolts. The cap bolts must be welded semi-circular plates to make it easier to tighten and remove them.
As the base supports the round metal plate. Weld it to one of the previously made connections.
The manufacture and Assembly of clutches
At the next stage start manufacturing the clutches. Weld the housing, inserted inside a piece of steel channel.
The channel and the housing, weld nuts, pre-drilled in holes. Then weld two pieces of thick-walled pipes.
Cut two more pieces of pipe of smaller diameter, the ends of brew washers. Their insert pieces of pipe welded to the channel and the housing. Fix long bolts.
After that set screw and fasten on the end a knob. Make and weld clamping jaws.
To the bottom of the housing a second weld connection. Clean the metal with a grinder and paint. Then connect the grip with the ground.
