    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

      Looks great Loring.

      Dimensions, hole locations? You knew someone would ask
      Downunder ... 1" = 25.4mm

        Very complex design.
        8" x 1-1/2" x 3/4" block
        Uses 1/4", 3/8", 1/2" drills only.
        1" from each end, side holes 1/4" Dia thru
        center side hole 3/8" dia. thru
        Top holes centered 1" from front.
        2" from right end top hole 1/2" dia thru
        2" from left end top hole 1/4" thru
        3" from each end, top hole 3/8" dia thru
        Countersink 7/16"Dia forstner 1/8" deep on back side of side 1/4" holes for bolt head. Use hex bolt to mark pattern, use 1/2" chisel to enlarge CS hole to hex hole
        Use bandsaw cut kerf 1" from front from each end to 3/8" hole.

        Drawing to come.

          Pretty cool knockoff.

          I wonder if building one like a stiching pony might make it easier to hone from different angles and/or do longer strokes.

            Thanks Loring.

            Complicated, but I'm sure I'll work it out

            BTW I have always drilled holes for bolt heads, the dia. across the flats (and depth of the head), and then "draw in" the bolt with a wing nut - always worked for me. Never had one fall out.

              if its a soft wood like pine I'll draw it in like you say. 7/16 is the flats distance for a 1/4-20 hex bolt head.
              But, if its hardwood, I'll go ahead and chisel it.

                here's a real drawing.
                very easy to build.

                  I saw a new product in the MLCS woodworking catalog that came today. A $30 router bit vise.

                  Reminded me of this DIY one I did a few years back for a lot less than $30. Very simple to make. THought I'd bump it.

                    Here's an improved version drawing with instructions - smaller and with alternate screw mounting holes - not requiring a fence clamp for mounting

                      Very nice! If I can get back to the workshop I might want to make this...
