HEAVY METAL Bench Vise :)





Introduction: HEAVY METAL Bench Vise :)

I was needed a Bench Vise but it was very expensive about 150 $, so I decided to make one, I used 10 mm metal plate for each body and bottom, also used 80x80x5 mm x 50cm  profile iron,  threaded rod, four nut, lastly high tempered steel plate for front plate.  thats result :)

- Angle grinder

    do u have a cut list or any plans i can use as a template to make one of my own??


    Hi, Sorry I dont have any plan, I made it according to my needs, You can use your own seizes bigger or smaller, principles are same .

    hi, i just want to know , the number of the electrode that you are using, thanks in advance.


    Hi, I used 3,25 mm electrode

    Very interesting design, congratulations. I have the same problem, need a good vise but they are too expensive.

    Consider that the threaded rod and nuts are not so hard steel as the commercial are, they will not last too much time.

    Get a Wilon 11104 bench vise. It is great and cheap. You are right about the threaded rods being soft, and also they need to be ACME rather than normal bolt threads for faster opening and closing and less chance of stripping.


    Thank you, yes I know nuts and rod not so suitable for this work but I wont strain it so much :)

    not knowing where you are located at i don't know exactly what your resources are. but you may be able to salvage some heavy duty nuts and bolts from large trucks or farm/construction.

    i am willing to help you with english if you want. I worked on machines of all types most of my life. i have a small shop in my back yard that i 'play' in.

    I like to help others learn the things that aren't being passed down any more.


    Thank you "weldor" for your recommandation but I m living in Turkey
