Hate to ask a silly question, but why did you buy two screws? Are you
building two tail vises?
Anyway, that's the kind of screw that you'd use to make a Scandinavian
style end vise (like those used by Frank Klausz and Tage Frid). The best
source I know of for detailed drawings is Landis' "The Workbench Book" ...
most libraries have it. I ran across an outstanding document of building
this sort of workbench at this website:
Has lots of pics and detail for building the vise.
A simplified type of end vise uses the sliding plate system. Lee Valley
70G09.01. Uses a hollow core and is a bit easier to build and very robust.
Hope that helps.
As I typed previously..." L-shaped end_vise_tail_vise combination "...
I have the book. This is the close idea of that tail vise in the .pdf you posted...
I just want to extend the end jaw all the way to the back of the bench, or to the
tool trough, if I build that into the bench. Might not.
That L-shape, the smaller part of the vise jaw that is at the end of the bench
will extend all the way to the back of the bench in distance, with the other
screw at that back end, using two screws.
The pin that holds the handle on the screw can be removed with a punch, there
is a washer there, between the handle and the mounting flange and the washer
can be replaced with a bored-out bicycle cog gear welded onto both screws. I
want to find the right plan for that tail vise framing and adapt it. Two vises in
one for less cost on the hardware.
I thought of that for this idea, but the threads on the sliding tail vise screw and
the tail bench screw do not match...as connected with a chain and in tandem
use, they would bind. I like the older design of framed tail vise idea anyway,
page 45 of the .pdf, I could accomplish it.
Thanks, I hope I can even work it out frankly, especially being a learner.
I have to consider the trestle depth from front to back and how far in
it goes from right to left, and how the top side brace relates in asembly.
It seems to be a complete design consideration. But, if I am able to
accomplish it, I will post pictures of it. That's why I am asking in this
group, though it is becoming a shot disconcerting here.
That's a great site! A fully illustrated 60-page pdf on 'how I did
it', complete with alternate methods for making the workbench. Very
