looking for a vise
Posted by 40kminis on Monday, August 06, 2018 10:17 PM

Howdy, looking for a small hobby vise with rubber jaws. I can only find the big metal ones or ones like the panavise which is too big for what I need. 

Anyone have any recommendations?

Micromark has some really cool stuff but a bit on the pricey side. Their punches are the best and a must to have but other things like this vise from Harbor Freight is cheaper and does the job for less $. I bought mine on sale a while back for $8 or $9:

I believe Model Expo has small vices.

Here is a way I fasten a vise to my bench.  The bench top is two 3/8 inch panels of particle board seperated by 1 x 2 edges and internal ribs.  I left out a section in the front to jam in a block of wood.  The vise is then mounted to the block.  This makes it removable so I have a rigid vise but removable to not obscure front of bench.
