    Bench vice question

    Where can you find the alluminumn vice grips like you had at school in metalwork.

    what size jaw john


    If they were just sheet alloy will no grippy bits or magnets they would be home made I would think


    Bit of thin sheet (not dural), tin snips and fold it/overlap in the vice itself




    If you measure me the jaws I can cut it to size and snip the joins for you (no good me folding it in my vice tho I suspect)

    It’s a 6”

    you would think it was easy to find, the rubber ones just don’t grip.

    If you send me a pic and just explain the measurements ill sort you something (ill do it in my wee guillotine/folder)

    6" wide but how high is the face of the jaw and conversely how deep is it into the body of the vice

    Well measure along the top of the jaw (for length - oooeerrr matron) and then the following (although I dont like them these are for sale on the bay - and although just cuts of angle would be better than nothing) and ill knock you some up.
