    Not sure if this is the one you want or the one made from pipe fittings. Then there's the one with two pipe flanges and a trailer hitch ball.

          Re: Poor Mans Vise

          I've built the poor mans vice, the issue I'm having is the rod that slides through the eyebolt will not stay secured. If I'm using a mallet and cutting from the side the rod rotates, any suggestions on how to secure it? I've tried using an 80 grit piece of sand paper but it only works for a short time.

          Thanks

            hmm, when I click either of the 2 links I get an oops page not found.
            is there another way to find these?

              Here's one version from the internet:

              The BLOG of Jerry Hartzell | Woodcarving on a Budget - Jerry's Carving Vise

              Here's another. No dimensions or parts list, but if you look carefully, all parts are easily visible.

                thanks claude. they both open up for me. I like the idea and will most likely make one or two for myself later on this spring when it warms up.

                  I want to make some too, but how frustrating, the flanges don\'t seem to be available online in the UK, and I don\'t know of another source. Also, we have 1/4\" and 1/2\" nipples, but not 3/8\". Grrrrrr!!!

                      Randy George\'s vise look absolutely sensible. My problem would be to find a place to put it.
                      redsquirrel: the pipe flanges might be available through a supplier of DIY parts for (outdoor) tables= hardware, not a plumber\'s supply.

                      Yeah the software loves///////// \"\"\"\"\"\" \'\'\'\'\'\'\'\'\' slash marks.

                        If you have Woodsmith magazine they printed plans for a nice bench as well as a swivel vise. It\'s the June/July issue 2015.

                          file small notches in the pipe fitting that the eye bolt goes through that will help hold it.
