What size mounting bolts for my record vice?
That is for a woodwork vice, aren’t we assuming it’s an engineers vice?
Yup,but I recently used coach bolts fitting my vice ,as they were the only things that I could find ( in my box of bolts) that were long enough to go through the vice and the work bench. I just filed off some of the corners on the square and they fit flush.
Then I painted them to match the vice. 🙂

I believe that on STW owning the vice is the important thing. It allows wealthy middle aged IT managers to stay in touch with their working class roots.
A bit snippy today, aren’t we? As someone who was brought up in a working-class household, and who’s dad was a toolmaker at Westinghouse Brake & Signal Company, I feel I have an absolute right to own any vice I want, so there! 😛Posted 4 years ago
Thanks folks. Just got a new house with a nice shed so I had to get a vice, and obviously with this being STW it had to be an old British-made Record (no 1). It is an engineers vice. I do need to cut down the fork steerer on my road bike so it’s not just for show. 🙂
1″ thick bench not enough? Can i just screw another piece onto the underside?
I don’t work in IT btw. And I don’t really have any working class roots to get in touch with. 😉Posted 4 years ago
NB I realise this falls way below acceptable STW standards, but I don’t really care….
Hang your head in shame. Go and pray to mcmoonter and ask for his forgiveness.
Due to the current living arrangements I don’t have a garage or workshop at present
Yeah it’s the first time I’ve ever had one and it’s awesome!Posted 4 years ago
