HEAVY METAL Bench Vise :)

Picture of 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 :)

Tools:
- Angle grinder
- Welding Machine
- Measure 
- Spirit level

I hope you like this project, I will add dimensions and painted photos as soon as possible.

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.

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

A primary form to solve that problem is to multiply the nuts. But warning, when you weld them they displace a bit, and then is difficult or impossible to put the rod.

Nice, less than a third of the store bought vise; I'll keep this in mind when I need a new one.
