    Did I miss something or was the piece of Oak in the vice flush with the top of the vice one moment and then sticking up proud of the vice a moment later? How is the piece of Oak adjusted up and down? Great work by the way. Will definitely incorporate this into my first workbench!

    I’m starting to like you Russians.

    Not bad but you limited yourself by installing the back plate proud of the side of your bench. If you recess the vise further the whole side can be used to keep work straight or hold longer boards with additional clamps. I traced my inner plate onto a 2×4 and used a router to mortise it out. Then mounted it all flush to the side.

    What size lag bolts did you use?

    I just received my vice today and looked at a few videos to see how to mount it. This was by far the best way for my purposes. I will also need to drill holes for the vice rods to go into since the lip of my work table is only about 3 inches and I won’t be able to close the vice enough for a thinner piece of wood. I’ll also be adding some holes for bench dogs as well now 😁. The only thing that was not really necessary, at least in my beginner opinion, was that little shim to hold wood. You could just as easily clamp a piece of wood a bit higher than the vice and use that as the stop block. But this was otherwise perfect for what I need to do on my new work bench. Thank you!

    What did you call the piece that you used in the table as a stop and where did you buy it?

    Hi. I just got this very same vise at a flea market for $10 US. Not bad! All you really need actually. Then a metal vise mounted on a piece of scrap plywood and clamped to the bench when needed. Removed when not needed.
