Need a woodwork vice


Recommended Posts

G'day all,


I've been doing some more delicate woodwork lately, and my Record No. 6 engineers vice just isn't the right tool for the job. Its like the picture shown, and I think these have a replaceable jaw front?


Is there a good way to add timber to the jaws to protect my work (as needed), or should I just buy a woodworkers vice?


something like this? http://audel.com.au/irwin-record-tv175b-woodcraft-vice-175mm/


If I'm going to get a second vice, i like the idea of an underbench mounted one ....

If you are going to spend the money on a wood workers vice I would get one bigger than the Irwin it just looks tiny. Check around your local version of craiglist or ebay. for an older one. I think vices fall into the category they don't make them like they used to, or if you do find one made like they used to they cost a ton of cash.
