I’ve been wanting a small vise when working on guitar nuts and saddles.
Lee Valley sells a small vise they call a Toolmaker’s Vise. Here’s a link to it.
I thought I’d try it and see what I think as it’s not expensive.
It comes like this with removable jaws. They will be nice for working with many small parts but I wanted some non-metal jaws for guitar work.
I made some Delrin jaws to safely hold nuts and saddles and raise them up for angle work. Delrin is easily cut and threads can be tapped into it. I planed a chamfer in the front piece for easier access to the work.
It’s small enough to fit in larger vises.
I think this is going to work out well and fill a need.
