Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Workbench Vise Upgrade!

One of the biggest upgrades made to Adam’s shop over the past year has been the addition of his new workbench, which was made by woodworker and engineer Andrew Klein. And as Adam has used this workbench’s numerous features for his builds, he’s come up with ideas of his own to make the bench work better for his needs. Today’s upgrade is to the bench’s vise, giving its handle better ergonomics and a design inspired by the handles on his mill.

  1. Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link,

  2. Why not just thread the end cap and screw the handle into it? When the handle is not folded it would be sticking straight out the end of the pipe like a pipe extension. When you fold it, it would be at a right angle to the pipe and you could then speedily rotate the vise screw. I wouldn’t think that the pipe would rotate while you are using the handle so the channel would not be necessary.
