  • DIY bench vise

    I found this video yesterday and was blown away by this guys skill as he created a very nice vice using a section of railroad rail and some scrap metal. Its true that he also had access to a machine shop, but keep in mind you may be able to sign up for an adult ed class at a local high school or voch school like I have in the past, and it might even count as your project:

    Its amazing what you can find to watch at night when you are sick of the usual tv mindrot.

    Well Sir,
    Watching that vid was much less wasteful than almost anything on TV! I really appreciate guys with skills! Of course, that's why I spend so much time on the web, cetting ideas for new things to do to my guitars or ideas for building new ones. Add to that, being being an incurable, card carrying, dyed in the wool "Tool Junkie" and well, there ya go!
