These instructions are a complete step by step guide that will show you how to build a drill press vise with a removable sacrificial base.
This project is designed to be an EASY build. You can probably get most of it done in a couple of sessions. The most time consuming part will be waiting for epoxy and polyurethane to dry!
About the plans:
- Formatted for normal sized (8.5″ x 11″) printer paper, so you can print them at home.
- They include:
- Imperial AND metric version!
- A complete shopping list for the materials you need.
- A complete list of parts you need to cut with all the dimensions necessary (with images).
- Step by step instructions that accompany and compliment the build video.
About the Vise:
- Dimensions: 6.75″ long x 5″ wide x 2″ tall, plus another couple inches in length for the handle.
- Made from wood, so it won’t damage any small wooden parts you need to clamp up for drilling.
- Sacrificial insert can be replaced by removing dowel pins.
Tools required (or at least strongly suggested) to build this project:
- Table Saw
- Miter Saw (Recommended, but not necessary if you have a table saw sled or another way to make good cross cuts)
- 23 Gauge Pin Nailer (Recommended, but not strictly necessary)
- Drill Press (Recommended, but you could get by with a regular drill)
- 5/64″ or 1/16″ bit
- 7/8″ Spade or Forstner Bit
- 5/16″ Bit
- 5/16-18 Thread Tapping Bit
