    The Jaws are about 1/4" wide and move in and out

    Ive tried to make vices several times and they all flopped. I think these will look fine once they are filled and painted.

    WOW now that takes skill and patience. A nice piece of work Jon.
    When I saw the first photo I thought it was a full size vice.
    Good to see your smiling face too.:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    I also noted that it took only three bottles of Heinekin to make the vices.

    Them's a might nice vice, Jon:D :D

    TY guys...

    LOL - if you look close, you will see one bottle is full, so it takes one bottle per vice :D :D :D

    The jaws move in and out, but there is no threaded screw; they just slide. So they may be positioned as needed, but don't actiually apply clamping force :)

    Jon if you soldered a nut inside the rectangal tubing and used like an 8/32 or 10/32 piece of threaded rod for the arm you could get it to clamp down with pressure. Pat

    Jon, I'll bet Shamus could use a dozen or so...as could I.
    Any chance you could do a step-by-step how to?

    Are some of these going into the Blacksmith shop?

    Belg, for a very brief moment, I considered doing something similar, then my santy returned to me :D :D :D

    That's my 4th best friend :D

    Hehe these two are on their way to visit the CATS layout :D

    I guess I could write something up, but there's not much to it, just use your immagination to come up with the parts and solder 'em together.

    Yup, HO/HOn30, cepins when modelin' for someone else, then I do any scale :D

    Not much patiance, really friend, you already ahve the soldering skills, why not get some bits of brass and give it a go?

    For those who don't solder or don't like to solder, you can do as much or more in styrene. You would actually have a better selection of materials, and it's easier to cut, paint, add NBWs, etc.

    Ralph Remember...it's for fun!

    That is impressive work Jon! I've always admired your ability to work with minute parts in brass. Hmmmm, I recall a weird character in some movie commenting "The only way to treat vice..is with a vice!" Don' t recall the film. Any way..Great work!!!! :thumb:

    So it's clear, you have another one in the works.

    And I'm glad - NOW I know what kind of flux you use for your soldering wizardry!

    Great, job, Jon! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    Nice vices. All five of 'em. What wattage soldering iron do you typically use? I have been thinking of making a resistance soldering iron because i just have a 25 watt pencil iron, that's fourty years old so it's probably only a ten watter by now, and i find it won't let me do much in the way of "structural" soldering. Was trying to redo the flag "pole" on a turnout and just couldn't get it hot enough quick enough.

    Nice work, I think you should model a tool and die works, inside and out, with lighting,...please.
