Vise on stump

Here's my low cost vice stand. Made from an oak stump with a cast iron excercise bike wheel as a base. I can roll it where I need it. HaHa

Why? Seems like a good alternative to a $40 HF stand to me....



In a while, Chet.

Hey it works! And if you need to store a tool just screw in a hook or bore a hole for it to slide into. When it becomes no longer useful into the fire it go's

It needs an axe wedged in the side to complete the look.

I like it. If I had room I might just do the same thing.. I bet you really have a solid feel when pounding on an anvil type vice.

LOL I had my anvil on a big hunk like that for a looong time. So long, it split and was rotted too. I have a big vise been on the garage floor for 2-3 years cuz I never re did the anvil and needed two such bases. I never should have given away my WAR DEPT ordnance stands - heavy duty cast iron still got brass tags.
