Learn how to: Bar Clamp Bench Vise

I noticed an image on fb exhibiting a piece bench coated in vises and it integrated some vises made out of bar clamps. That is most likely not one of the best construct as a result of I used to be brief on time.

I like it a lot.. I might build one like yours for the end of my bench..
You are limited by the width & pipes & rods to put anything in the vise like say a saw that needs sharpening etc.
I have one I made up with two bar clamps, It's major downfall is that the clamps where made in taiwan from harbor freight & are crap, Yours appear to be good ole vintage ones which I doubt are even available any more.. 1/2" or 3/4" I used 3/4" because I had them..
And stated below these are different than the jay bates vise & he didn't invent it either , I first saw one as a boy in the mid/late 60s.. We didn't have internet back then boys..

Not a bad idea. I have a decent face vise already, but this could work out as a shoulder vise to use with dog holes on the end of the bench, something I've been kicking around awhile now.

You have some real innovation over some of the other pipe lamp vices I've seen. Liked how you used a peace plywood to add between the back plates for mounting and rigidity. Also the guide rods. Thank you for the video.
