When bored, build a vise...

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

When bored, build a vise...

Postby Farmwelding » Fri Jan 19, 2018 8:46 pm

Since college doesn't start till next week I got my entire afternoon at school free and live in the shop. Decided to build me a vise to make my roses at home more easily. Whole lot of 1/8" angle iron. I'd paint it but I'm just going to burn it off at some point so I figured I didn't need it. No plans for it, just threw it together cause I had nothing better to do today.

A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

You even have a place(s) to clamp it down. Did you MIG weld it? How did you attach the screw to the jaw?

90% mig welded. I did a little oxy fuel just for fun. On the inside of the square tubing there is a washer and a snap ring to hold it int place

Nicely done Nick

A proof of you can make a useful tool without fancy machines.
