Ron Kiely's Toolmaker's Vise

“I’ve had a rest from doing bicycle lights for a bit and after seeing Dean’s home made tool maker’s vice. I thought I’d have a go at making a mini version. So out came the vertical slide for the lathe and in the end it all turned out nice and square. I fitted some brass jaws as it will be used for making jewellery so soft jaws won’t mark the work. All turned out well thanks to the vertical slide the pictures should speak for themselves.”
