Bessey vice on the MFT3 - Video
« on: October 21, 2018, 04:17 PM »
Hi Everyone,

A while ago I was gven a Bessey vice and it was included in a video at that time. However, I could not quite see how I could use it in my workshop and in particular how it could be integrated with the MFT3. So, I gave it away to a young apprentice in order to encourage him and help him out.

Then, just before the D&M show here in the UK I had an idea how it could be used. So this time I bought one (at the full show price) and this video shows what I managed to do.



Okay, it is a cheap and cheerful vice and might not be an industrial item but boy is it going to be useful on the MFT3.

Great Idea. I have a few of these laying around. I like the mft sys option as well!

This is great, thanks.
helper: i used a festool "circular saw" to do something simple and it made it really hard

me: exactly, it makes simple cuts complicated and complicated cuts simple

Great stuff! Couldn't one just use a Festool clamp to secure the vise?

It would be perfectly possible to use a Festool clamp but I wanted something easier to use and, if left on the MFT3 for days on end, does not use up valuable resources - some of us can only afford one pair of Festool clamps !

Cheers.
