I prefer standing when working on tedious projects, so I constructed this inlay work station.  It has a 360 degree vise that let's me rotate the work without unclamping it every time.  It also tilts so I can angle the work toward me a little.  Works great so far!

Notice the foot switch on the floor, really helpful for keeping both hands on the router at start up/off.

I have that exact little silver vice mounted on my desk here at work!

I got it from a buddy who closed his shop years ago. Heh we all have our vices.

Got my latest StewMac catalog yesterday.  On page 40."Freehand Holder".  I'd been trying to come up with a spray stand, this will work for me.  1/2" EMT and a 3lb sledge to flatten, maple legs.  3/4 inch speedbore bit supplies enough friction to hold body where needed and allow easy rotation.

It will also double as a stand for grinder, etc. with mdf for stand top and shelf, so it won't be just taking up space 90% of the time.  EMT removes easily.

I considered using an extra large bucket of KFC but didn't for obvious reasons.

might be in order to carry it as a proprietary finish!!!

I wonder if they recycle the oil for fuel - lots of guys wandering off after the smell of a KFC from the exhaust of a passing truck... :puke: ;)
