Scrap wood clamp to simple bench vise

HI GUYS.. I have a scrap clamp .. what can i do?? I have a good idea .. The woodworking students need bench vise .. because they want to work at out of school workshop but they dont have a bench vise in their home..and they dont have any money for bench vise..because they are student.. I did convert a scrap wood clamp (35cm) to a very simple bench vise for they.. They can work woodworking in their home. .

I would like to see the final outcome.
Good luck in your future progress.

Just an observation ......

The clamping force in this vise, is simply from a "F" clamp, not very much. The amount of force depends on the diameter of the threaded rod on the clamp and because of it's small size/diameter you can't generate much holding power. A larger diameter threaded rod like a 3/4" all thread would give you more holding power, BUT it would not have the fast adjustment feature of the "F" clamp. I use 1/2" threaded rods to make these panel clamps for gluing pieces together:








If you were to use a pipe clamp like this, even two of them between two boards spaced apart and run them through holes in the boards, you would have more clamping force:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Thank you very much for your comments...

You're so genius.. I like your panel clamps.. it is usefully and effective. .

The students will not use for gluing pieces with it..

I will do a workbench from pallet wood for they..

They will do basic and simple exercises with hand tools on the workbench

Like these for example...

I think.. They don't need more extra holding power..

I want to try my chance and my luck..

If I hear negative feed back from students I can change...

Only change I would make is to make ends higher and put a notch for the clamp so vise will sit on bench.
