Holy crap these little Hand Vises are handier than shit!
I cut down these sheet metal strips to a rough size and then wanted to kind of even the edge up to make them easier to get them in a drill press vise so I can drill through all of ’em at one time.
Knowing that the little strips were going to get hotter than hell on the belt sander I figured I’d try those hand vises to hold on to them instead of trimming my fingernails the hard way and burning the shit out of my finger tips.
I need to make some shims for the saddle on the mini lathe.
They worked so good I am going to be looking to get a couple more here in the not too distant future.
One more in the middle would have been perfect.
I have to drill them and cut them down to cover the strips where the three holes are in the saddle under them on both sides.
I wasn’t kidding about them getting hot either. Even the hand vises got REAL warm.
Worked slicker than snot though.
I am loving these things.
Ebay here I come….
