Bench Vise | Woodsmith Plans - This vise provides a solid grip and all-around access. Stout hardwood jaws and rugged Acme threaded rods deliver all the clamping force of a standard vise but in a compact package. The narrow, profiled jaws let you work on a piece from a variety of angles. Perhaps best of all, the vise is elevated so it’s a real back-saver. The plan provides three ways to attach it to just about any worksurface or bench. #woodworkingprojects #woodworkingplans
I’ve Been Drilling Pilot Holes Wrong My Entire Life. Here’s How I Learned to Correct My Technique.
My problem was a lack of understanding about how a screw joint actually works. It's not the threads biting into both pieces that secured everything in place. Rather, the strength of a screw joint comes from the threads pulling the screw through the bottom piece and securing the top from the pressure against the screw's head. The threads are irrelevant in the top piece; only the head matters.
