    Ultimate Workbench

    Reading about the vice and the dogs brought holding pipes to mind. I have a need to hold tubes or pipes in the vice without squashing them with the flat faces and have found drilling a hole the same external diameter of the pipe through a stave of timber then cutting the stave lengthways through the centre of the hole producing two mirror imaged pieces with semi-circular indentations. These go in the vice with the pipe through the indentation and the vice is clamped up. The kerf from the saw blade provides the gap for pressure to be applied to hold the pipe and as the two gap cutouts are the same as the pipe there is no pipe deformation. I use metalwork vices frequently and to hold timber in those use a couple of wooden 3 x 1/2 inch strips glued and screwed to a right angle to slip ...

    Free Energy from Thin Air!

    Yes you can and it is not legal. One or two people who attempt this have been prosecuted as you can't really hide it. All you need do is place a few coils of wire under the power cables and magnetic induction will power up your coils. Vary your needs with the number and size of your coils. However, it only works during the same time your power cables do and most companies have a helicopter flying over the power lines every now and then to check for problems and your coils, even if buried underground, will stand out like a sore thumb. As this is a theoretical question you have what you need to know and the answer is based on things I've been told - not practical experience.
