Starting to look like a workbench now, so far so good.

* I see you are suffering a lack of clamps (like me) Ralph. Tried using screws as "clamp" in one project and though they could never reach the clamping pressure of a real one, it worked fairly.

*How thick is the top? 4 inches? And what kind of wood?

*I see you're using the base already for storage. Works well as ballast.

*I just used nut&bolts and lag screws on mine. Yours have real M&Ts, way to go Ralph! Post ulit pag i install na vise.

I have eight pipe clamps, the photo is a dry run to see which part is work best for clue up. But it's true I need more clamps.

The top is 3 3/4 might go to down 3 1/2 pa for final leveling. Not sure of the wood, I bought it from Home depot 2x4x10.

The base is my practice wood before, I put together some 3 years ago, my plan is to put cabinet for tool storage.
vise is on d way, I will add tail vise and a front vise, simple design just enough to hold the wood while working.

id still like to make another wb with no tailvise for an extra front vise still in box...i rarely use the tailvise in fact..and especially now that i only have little abdominal muscle strength! Agh!

there is no excuse why you should not have another workbench to use as another "aircraft carrier" for this and that...hehehe
id better clear my workbench pala before the new year!

Happy new year everyone!

Ayan, Workbench na siya kase bukod na "aircraft carrier" sya, may front vise na. The chop is 10" high, and 29" wide. Shy of 2" thick. Take that!

Image
Having to turn two screws is more involved but i immediately sensed the workholding power of this one, not present in the showa record copy. Dalawa ba naman at magkalayo pa (fulcrum/lever principle.)

This is my "temporary vise" but i sense that i'll be using it for years... there is a provision to make it longer. It's hilariously big and unproportional i know. The space between screws is 15". Will make it longer when there'll be a project that will force me to.

A bit OT: I'm a bit worried about my lack of precision as a woodworker for now. Look at that gap. Hindi pang internet. It is worse in real life. I haven't harnessed the power of shooting boards and making jigs to make a jig that will be a fixture for accuracy. I lack patience to make those and just wing it.

While waiting for my vise to arrive, busy with the base, and put my Record 050 plane to practice.

The base will serve as a tool cabinet.

This is one reason why I prefer handtools over machine, I can route grooves even late at night :angel:

I still have a lot to learn with this tool, it's fun to use compared to my power router no dust to cough.
