MFT/3 pipe clamp vise
« on: June 01, 2017, 10:07 AM »
This is my first ever post in the group, so apologies in advance for not being on top of the netiquette.
Just in case it is of interest, I've posted a YouTube video offering a somewhat closer view of a Jay Bates' inspired pipe clamp vise that I adopted for the MFT:

a bit less helpful vid that includes some footage of myself using it for the first time out in the cold is available here:

best wishes,

Excellent idea. May have to borrow that.

Your ingenious clamp aside, I would like to put in a request for you to give us a quick video tour of your tiny shed/shop with particular attention to the methods you've arrived at that allow you to maximize the limited space. I'm always excited to learn more about the efficient use of space and catching a glimpse of your setup leaves me wanting more. Crossing my fingers that you'll share your tricks.

Hi Evangelos

Your double pipe clamp vice is an excellent idea and a very nice project to use to introduce yourself to the FOG - welcome.

Have you managed to overcome the racking that so many tall vices suffer from? I get racking with my MFT vice but it is not a show stopper.

I look forward to seeing some of your other projects.
