    Ever wished you had a special vise just for filing?! ME TOO! Let's build one.

Can't believe that old Tony disorganized his pristine scrap collection just for cinematic effect, what an artist!

Mr. Tony, To get at the "C" clips simply drill some large holes through the square pipe to allow you to de-clip the bolt. You can then get a slightly longer bolt to use so that you can put an axe head in the new vice! Great welds and super nice design!!

They do exist already, just not marketed to the engineering industry. Look up farriers’ horseshoe vices and you’ll find an entire array of them at different price points and levels of complexity. Some remain parallel, some don’t. But there’s so many to choose from I’m sure you’d find something that works.

Being a machinist for over 20 years now and never heard of this "restocking" technique. Could you make a deatiled video about it? Can it also be done on the milling machine?

The fixed jaw that you offset was in the wrong direction for gaining clearance, the offset you added actually reduced the amount of jaw opening capacity. That could be close to your 1/4" that you lost. Need to move the lower jaw down to have the clamping face as flush to the end of the tube as you can be while the floating jaw is at its max extent.

Hey I just wanted to say thanks, you got me started into a career of actually tig welding. I’m 21 but at the beginning of Covid I bought a tig welder and wanted to start doing some hobby work but I couldn’t figure out how to do anything, But I had been watching your videos and you got me to the place that in level c welding when we did tig I was so good that my teacher recommended me to a brewery making place. Stainless steel sanitary tig welding and this is all possible because of your videos. Thanks this old tony!

As an engineer, I’d like to point out that per ANSI standard, any drawing with a lemon yellow sun, grass, and fluffy green tree requires a minimum of one (1) stick figure to indicate scale. I also want to point out that your first name was not in the upper RH corner along with the correct prefix “By”.

Your videos are always worth the wait, and thank you for making your content digestible to us laymen.

Until now I did most of my filing in cabinets, looking forward to see how a vice would improve my document workflow.

Tony, you have been missed. I hope things are going well for you, and if not I hope whatever may be "not well" improves for you.

So happy to see you are alive and kicking! We live for your content and your humour!

I don't know if you've seen Fireball Tool, but he showed off a technique for dealing with the weld bead by machining a trough on the outside of the inner tube where it would rub against the weld. That way he doesn't have to either cut it open or grind it inside the tube.

Nice design. If you put slots into the inner tube you'd be able to create access to the retaining washer. Re commercial options, Jewellers use something called a Mitre filing block, which is similar in principal your idea, but the jaws are a mitred cut in a bock that bolts together. The block is quite thin so when held by a standard bench vice there is plenty of room to get your hand up close to the work. I hope that helps. Take care D

I consider your posts the highlight of my feed, you may be busy lately and not have time to make videos as often as you used to, but I want you to know that you easily have the best cinematography on all of YouTube and each video makes my day. I wish your family health and blessings.

You could always drill a hole into the side of that smaller tube to regain access to that snap ring and then replace the bolt with something longer. Might be a bit tricky to replace the ring through the hole, but you only need to do it once anyhow.

Tony, thanks for an interesting and enjoyable show. I use the PANAVISE 301 with the PANAVISE 354 Brass jaws to hold my cutlery, axes, sabers, lawnmower blades, and broadswords for sharpening. The universal mount allows me to position material in almost any orientation and they are relatively inexpensive. I've had the same one for 40 years with no problems. Keep up the good work showing us what a fertile imagination and good skills can make.

As always, just brilliant. That feeling of inadequacy while working with available tools, and then the compulsion to build some thing completely new to solve your one single problem, that's what leads to new innovations. That's what makes the world a more creative and better place 😉

Very cool. (I’m tempted to make one just to make on lol). If you make a final build, you should add some small pieces of leather, no slip material or padding so when you clamp into it. It gives it a bit more grip.

THIS... is why I love this channel. You can never take yourself too seriously in life.
