Free Metalworking Project Plans: Toolmaker’s Screwless Vise (Mill)

Material: Steel Units: (in)

Here's a nice set of plans for a Toolmaker's Screwless Vise. A vise like this is handy to have, and I even used one to make the jaws for the Tapping Fixture.


This is a somewhat advanced project for the mill, and should be constructed from a suitable grade of steel (to ensure that it will provide you with years of quality service). If you have the ability to do so, you may even consider hardening the vise once you've completed it.
