Simple custom wasteboard and vice in one

(Eddie Garmon) #1

Step 1 - Make an 8"ish square 3/4" thick board (I used white pine).

Step 2 - Tape down and drill mounting holes.

Step 3 - Mount new waste board and cut out pocket with extra room for block wedges.

Step 4 - Tape down a small piece of stock and cut out 2 wedges

Step 5 - Mount your work piece in the pocket with the wedges all snug. Here I mounted a piece of red oak to start making some disc golf bag tags.

The same wedges can be used with different waste boards with different sized pockets.

Some other notes after last nights experiments.

I am using 11 degree angle for the wedge which works well, good holding and easy inset/removal with a rubber mallet. I have made additional wedges of varying lengths and 1.5" width to hold smaller items in the existing pocket.

The extended ‘point’ from the angle extensions can be reduced, and I will do that in future ‘SpoilVices’, most likely as an arc. This would allow for a larger pocket also.

The current pocket was designed for a 2.5" x 3.5" blank, with 1" + angle wedges.
