    Now that's a good idea.
    I've been replacing jaws on my lathe with aluminum so I can true them up and prevent marks, don't know why I never thought to drill and tap them, too.

    Hey guys,

    Here is a speed vise that I made - it can be used vertical / horizontal or flipped to the opposite side - it works really well, and was cheap to make.

    It pivots at the end and slides fast to locate the part under the drill - the all-thread clamps tightly locking the part in place, and you only need to hold the handle with the left hand while drilling to keep it in place. I milled some steps in the jaws to act as quick parallels.

    I used it on the DP for a while until I bought a 8" Heinrich vise (love that thing) and now this has been re-pourpused to bandsaw duty, as it works really well for holding / pushing / and guiding parts on the vertical bandsaw.

    Oh, and that Coors Light box is not mine, but you can see a Kokanee box next to it, that one is mine

    Cheers,
