Eclipse 9″ Woodworking Vice – I Like Tools Episode 07

Amateur Jon installs his precious little woodworking vice. It is a 9 inch Eclipse vice. To install it he added some 2×4’s to his bench and screwed it in.

You’ll notice I didn’t line up the top of the vice to be flush with the bench top, not sure it that will be an issue. If it is I will extend the wood jaws further up.

The Holdfast and the Batten – Tail Vice Alternative For Hand Tool Woodworking

A sturdy workbench is essential for hand tool woodworking. You need to be able to clamp your work in many different ways, but good woodworking vises can be expense and complex to install. This alternative method makes use of a traditional holdfast and simple home made batten with a bird’s mouth notch. Combined you can secure work down to your workbench top quickly and effectively for planing both with and across the grain.
