iron woodrow

Set up my 9 incher

Recommended Posts

Set up my 255mm (9") vice this week.

The bench it is on is bedecked with railway sleepers. (Railroad ties for those in need of translation)

I look forward to many hours smiting on this big old xxxxer.

That is an enviable vise for sure...it borders on being an anvil.  Consider me jealous.

How does she look on the floor? I can't quite make it out what the leg is resting on.

I am thinking just using a steel plate with a hole on a similar vise.

are the jaws 9" across? that is a monster! how much does she weigh?

Never weighed it, but it would have to be near 100kg or more.

At the moment it is sitting on a bit of timber at the foot, am yet to make the bracket to bind the leg to the table.

100Kg... xxxx! a true monster.

I've used wood at the foot with good effect in the past. am guessing that with such a stout unit as yours, as long as the wood doesn't split, it's good to go.

I like how however mild your language might have been, it now looks like you used one of two very profane obscenities.

I have plenty of large bits of timber and plate to use to mount the foot.

Not bad for a scrap pile find eh?
