Santa brought me a new Vise for Christmas!


I had to go out and purchase some mounting hardware for this one :)  That's today's project - getting the new vise mounted on my bench.  I removed the old one yesterday.  Here they are together, the new big boy on the block, and the baby he's replacing:


I've had that little one since I was 15 years old.  My Grandpa gave it to me.  May not be the best vise in the world, but it has lasted me through a LOT of projects over the years!

Regardless, I'm excited to be getting a real vise!  ;D

Beautiful grinder Eric!
Are you planning on grinding lathe tools? I have mine set up with a silicon carbide (green wheel) for carbide, and an aluminum oxide (white wheel) for grinding HSS.
The Glendo tool rests are also a nice addition. https://accu-finish.com/product-category/rough
I'm not sure if they still make them though.

 :cheers:
Dave

Santa was late this year in this corner of the globe, but finally he has found the right door.


Kind Regards

This was a bit of an early Christmas present for the Foredom part of the workbench (see photo). But since it alread has a high intensity light inside it, I ordered a separate short hanger stand and base and will relocate the swing down LED task light from the Foredom area to between the Cowells and Unimat lathes. That way I can swing it over either lathe as needed. The new hanger post and base should be in today on the big brown truck. You can see the jist of what i mean in the second photo.

Seems like old Santa did good. Thanks for looking in Dave O. Yeah for lathe tools, drill bits, and shaper tools ( just gotta find a shaper  :lolb:). I have a import tool grinder with the green wheels what for carbide, but, I vary rarely use it. Been wanting to get a diamond wheel for it for grinding scraper blades. I need to put it on a stand also. Looks like they still sell the grinder attachment  :thinking:
