    Hi all, I'm building my first proper workbench with a thick laminated top and am racking my brain on how to incorporate my massive vise rather than to buy/make one for the table. I want the vise jaws to be flush with the tabletop, meaning the vise has to be seated under it rather than on it...

    Hello, I'm new to this forum and am looking for a part for a vise I inherited from a friend. It is the Rockler HD Front Vise with quick release. The vise has a two-part quick release mechanism that is missing one of the pieces. Rockler has told me they can't help- except for selling me a whole...

    I'm considering mounting an Eclipse 7 inch quick release vise on the short end of the workbench. The plan is to use it in a manner similar to a wagon vise for clamping objects flat to the workbench top. But, due to interference from the leg of the workbench, the vise would need to be mounted...

    I am new to woodworking and am just finishing up my first workbench. I purchased a 10" Eclipse vise, and took it apart to clean and install the vise. I have reassembled it, but the vise jaws won't open. I did take apart the mechanism on the bottom of the vise that holds the threaded piece...

    Someone else pointed out that adjustable bench dogs would also work, but I made these in a day with scrap metal I had around, so the cost was minimal. I may make some dogs the next time, but these should work well for my projects. Anyway, thought I'd share how they are made in case someone wants...

    Setting up a shiny new shop in the corner of my new garage at my new house. Moved from a small condo with no garage or basement and have reclaimed my neglected tools from storage. My daughter and I built a decent mobile workbench from a 7' x 3' gypsum-filled, oak covered door on top of a sturdy...

    Hello All, I am moving from dabbling in woodworking to taking it seriously and would like to learn how to build a good workbench. I've begun reading Scott Landis' book on the subject. I will probably read at least 1 other book on the topic. I can't afford to spend more than $500, so a huge...

    I want to build and donate a workbench to our local Rotary Club charity auction, but I can’t afford to build it out of hardwood. Has anybody built one from spruce 2 x lumber? How did it turn out? Even by using this cheaper wood, the cost of a decent vise will make it a pricey venture, but...
