Put a stop to your vise
To make my shop vise work even harder, I added a stop to it. Now I can quickly and accurately drill holes in the same place in multiple wood or metal workpieces.
Make this simple modification to your vise by drilling and tapping its side to accept a length of all-thread rod. Add nuts, washers, and a stop as shown. Mount the vise on a piece of plywood for easy clamping to a drill-press table.
