FACE VISE BLOCK

everything you need to know. Once the dog holes are complete, glue the strip to the tail vise assembly.
To complete the tail vise, I added a "pinch" block to the inside face of the vise. This gives the mounting collar and handle for the vise a "centered" look and covers the end of the vise hardware (Figure 13). Finally, add the handle to the vise.
You can make your own or buy one (see sources on page 51).
ADDING THE FACE VISE
All that's left to complete the bench is to add a face vise. The nice tiling is, there are only two parts to make — a face vise block and a collar support strip, as shown in Figure 15.
Like the tail vise, you'll need to disassemble and reassemble the vise a few times. Plus, drilling slightly oversized holes (detailed in the drawings) helps avoid any alignment problems.
Mounting the Vise. The first step is to disassemble the vise and bolt the mounting plate to the bottom of the bench (Figures 15a and 15b).
The next step is to make the support block for the metal collars that provide extra support for the guide rods (Figure 15). Note: You'll need to cut a couple notches where the strip covers the bench dog holes.
After drilling a pair of oversized holes in the collar support block for the guide rods and screw; bolt the block to the bench, as in Figure 15.
Now, slide the support collars onto the shafts and assemble the vise by feeding the rods through the collar support block, into the vise mounting plate.
At this point, you can slide the support collars up to the support

block and trace around the outside edges. Now, disassemble the vise (again) and using the tracing as a guide, drill a counterbore for the support collars. Note: The counter-bore can be slightly oversized with die supports collars flush with the face of the support block.
With that complete, bolt the support strip back in place and reassemble the vise. Then, slide the collars into the counterbores and screw them in place.
All that's left to do now is make the face vise block (Figure 15). After gluing up die block and rounding the edges, drill a set of holes for the guide rods and threaded shaft. These holes should align with the holes in the support block. And be sure to locate the holes so the block ends up flush with the left end and top edge of the bench.
After slipping the face vise block over the rods and shaft, tighten the vise to "clamp" the block to the bench. Then simply screw the block in place, as shown in Figure 15b. Then all that's left to do is add a handle to the vise and start working at your new bench.
