Did I mention that I love working metal!
One of the most important tools in a machine shop, is a machinist bench vise. I just finished building this 1/4 scale model vise, scaled down from a full size 4 1/2" Wilton machinist bench vise. As small as this 1/4 scale vise is, it is still capable of doing serious work. I've decided that this one turned out way to nice to be subjected to any serious work, so instead, I will display it with some of my other collectables.
The photos in this gallery, were shot in my shop, and in no particular order, or of no particular subject. Some of the photos, are of the tools in my shop, and some are of tools or accessories that I have built to make the experience of working in my shop more pleasureable. There are also links to other galleries, including the gallery that shows some of the models that I have built over the years. Enjoy.
