Spacers for a Workbench Vise
Prolong the life of your bench vise with these easy-to-make jigs
A bench vise works best when it can clamp evenly along the entire length of its jaws. If you clamp a workpiece at one end of the vise with nothing at the opposite end, it’s only a matter of time before you’ll end up replacing the vise. In this video, Fine Woodworking contributing editor Christian Becksvoort shows you his solution to this problem — a set of measured spacers that match the thicknesses of typical workpieces.
