    Peter, if I lived next door I would climb onto the roof for you.
    Stay well, at least the spirit is willing. Keep it that way

    Hi
    I use my bench vice. I have made some MDF jaws which are hard enough to do the job but soft enough not to harm the pens. The problem is that they do not last long. Full of holes.
    On the whole though, it's a good system.

    Cheers
    Frederick

    Looking at turning and trying out hopefully new ideas and sharing the results.

    I made this up today. Have a pillar drill but got fed up swapping drill bits etc.

    I made a leg vice on my work table. I got the screws from ebay (old moxon vice) and used a piece of Yew for the leg of the vice. I set the depth on a lower piece of the vice and then tighten it all down. Works a treat and worked out rather inexpensive compared to an actual press, and i get a vice out of it too!
