Vice Pads




Introduction: Vice Pads

Build some vice pads to clamp delicate items.

Step 1: Measure

Measure the vice and mark two lengths of wood to accommodate.

Step 2: Cut

Saw the wood to the appropriate size.

Step 3: Mark Drill Holes

Mark the pieces of wood to drill holes for magnets.

Step 4: Drill

Drill the holes deep enough that the magnets are flush with the wood surface.

Step 5: Glue

Glue the magnets in place.

Step 6: Cut Rubber

Cut some gasket rubber to the size of the wood blocks. Tooling leather would also work well for this purpose.

Step 7: Glue

Epoxy the rubber pieces to the wood.

Step 8: Complete

Attach the pads to the vice.

    Just using what I had around the house. Didn't have large enough pieces, so combined scraps. Added an interesting aesthetic to boot.

    pretty simple and nice.
