HARDnuary: Vise
A LEGO vise, built for HARDnuary on Flickr.
About this creation
Over on Flickr, January is HARDnuary month, where the challenge is to build a piece of hardware or an object from everyday life. I chose to build a vise, because for me, nothing says "hardware" like a vise.

Your vice inspired me to make my own. Yours looks strong and much more pleasing to the eyes :)

Wow, much bigger then it looks at first glance. The lines are so smooth I thought it only had a couple dozen parts. Great job, the coping saw is my favorite piece of hardware, but the vase really does signify it.

Quoting clayton Marchetti Seriously Matt how big are you going to make the ship of yours 1:1 scale :-) . Excellent job BTW .
Haha! Well, at least I can use this to hold the model while I work on it.

Quoting Elk Guard That vise is tight!
Quoting XY EZ Funny creation! I like it!! 5/5 8-)
Quoting Topsy Creatori (StoveTopCreator!) What.... not bolted to a workbench?! Seriously, it looks so real! :)
Quoting Dr. Monster Great MOC! I love this theme and your vise is a picture perfect example.
Quoting Andrea Lattanzio Great!

Quoting El Barto ! Nicely done, Chief! I like the little indentations you put in the base, adds to the realism.
Thanks. You are absolutely right about the indentations -- I realized early on that the build just wouldn't be very convincing without them.

Quoting Jack Sparrow This is very good! This would be great built up. Add a couple of worm gears and stuff and you could make it open and close too. Would make a great conversation piece. I'm always impressed when folks take everyday items and build them. Impressive.
Thanks. I have given some more thought to adding the worm gears and I think I can do it without changing the size/shape of the model. I may have an update with that functionality added in.

Quoting matt rowntRee That looks spot on! As a metal worker, there truly is fewer things more valuable in a shop other than a vice. It's one of those tools that you don't use all the time but when you do, there is NO substitute. Excellent choice. My only criticism is that the jaws and the top aren't all destroyed like a properly used vice. ;) Superb!
You're preaching to the choir regarding the usefulness of a vise. I used to do a lot of work on classic cars (I still have a '69 Mustang Mach I in my garage, which I'll eventually get back to work on when my son is old enough to help). When there was a particularly stubborn nut or bolt, there was no better way to deal with it than a good vise and a 3-foot breaker bar.

Quoting Tom Simon Does it move when you turn it?
The clamp can slide in and out and it can turn on its base, but the handles don't do anything. If I made it a little bigger, I could pretty easily install a worm gear and a rack to make it work.
