I had a co-worker, who knows I'm an "aspiring woodworker", come up to me and
ask if in any of my woodworking magazines I had seen a plan for making a
shop vise "portable". He apparently remembered seeing a plan once in which
some sort of base with wheels was attached to a shop vise so that you could
move the whole unit around on a workbench (which he needs for a specific
purpose). I suspect something like this would be easy enough to make
without plans, but I was curious to know if anyone recalled this type of
plan appearing in a woodworking magazine.
P.S. I searched for this information on Google, Google Groups (this
newsgroup), as well as "Rick's Magazine Index"
(http://www.rickswoodshopcreations.com/Index/Online_Magazine_Index.asp ) but
came up dry in every instance.
This might be a duplicate -- I posted it using my news server and it
seems to not be downloading new messages right now so I don't know if
it got out or not. So I'm reposting via google:
Actually it was from Wood Magazine:
It was called: "best-ever Workshops". What you're looking for is on
page 42. It looks like it was a Jan/Feb 2003 issue (I think, it
doesn't say -- just says "Display until Mar 3, 2003" on the UPC code
Here's a picture of the project (to see if this was the right one):
I think you can order this issue, check out www.woodonline.com (it was
listed on the front cover).
