Vice repairs

Postby Dalboy » 12 Feb 2020, 22:19

I have two vices one needed a clean up and was given to me by a friend(The record one) and a cross slide vice.

The record just needed striping and a good tidy up some before and after photos.

Before the winds and rain I started repairing the second vice which had a handle broken when I brought it and the second handle which I managed to break.
It did start well until the wind took the roof off of my wood store so had to spend the last few days moving one hell of a lot of turning blanks into the second store.
I managed to get all the materials ordered and while I wait for them to start arriving tomorrow I had this afternoon free to complete the work on the vice.

I went for a simplified form for the two handles a piece of Ali bar for the cross pieces and some Coriam for the handles, two pieces of brass tube in each piece so that the Corian handle can rotate when operating the cross slides of the vice.

Not sure of the metal but was a light cast material.
