The first thing you will need to make guides that will “ride” the movable clamping sponge press vise.
Cut two piece of metal pipe of the desired length. Then to the ends of the weld on square plate with holes (the holes are threaded).
The corners of the plates to be cut, then processed them on the grinding machine that the edges were flush with the tube.
Next, from the steel round pipe with a larger diameter cut two sleeves. Put them on the rails.
As of the frame the author uses the channel. One butt weld another piece of steel channel, to the other a piece of metal plate. They drill the mounting holes.
One side guides are attached to the end channel and the other to the segment of the area (see photo below).
To hydraulic Jack worked in the horizontal plane, it is necessary to set the pump down, and then no alterations of the “internals” is not required.
One side of the Jack is attached to the metal plate, the second relies on the area to which are attached the guides.
The bushings weld the movable clamping jaw. After this will only make and fix metal plates on the jaws.
How to make a hydraulic press vise from the Jack you can see in the video below. This idea belongs to the author of the YouTube channel “STRIKE while the iron“.
