I got stuck with this project, due to the wooden threads not working properly - they get stuck, too. I have yet to manage to get them to work properly, but maybe someone else has a good idea about that, or can draw some inspiration from my mistakes, which is why I am publishing it unfinished. If that is not cool, please let me know.
All this is someone else's fault. Well, not really, but it starts with an instructable about a Treadle Lathe
referencing the Woodwright's Shop. Not being from the US this was the first I heard about it, and I got a little hooked. Why a little, you ask? Well, with too little time to actually do any "proper" woodwork, but there was one episode
that caught my attention. I admit I bought a wood thread cutter specially for making this, but I have plans to use it for other projects as well. Time will tell if I really do.
Anyway, I wanted to make such a vice for various reasons, not the least of which was that it appeared to be simple and easy enough to actually finish the project in a humane fashion.
