Fast Fix: Vise Insert Prevents Racking
Let’s face it, a workbench is largely useless without a good quality vise to help secure your work. If you’ve ever built your own bench, you know that this indispensable tool can be quite pricey. That’s why it surprises me whenever I see someone clamping a small or narrow work piece using only one end of a vise, while the other side racks inward due to a lack of support.
The solution? A simple set of spacers that not only keep your vise from racking, but keep a tight grip on your work as well. Learn how to build one in the latest episode of FineWoodworking.com’s Fast Fix video series. And be sure to visit the home of Fast Fix for even more time-saving tips and techniques.
