Happy Tuesday !
This week’s Alternative Tuesday segment from the Acutabove Woodworking channel features a project to fabricate Vise Jaws!
Every shop has an old steel vise or three. Many maker and hobby projects are held in a vise during operations such as cutting, sanding, gluing, or assembly. Sometimes the metal jaws on this vise are a bit too rough for the parts it holds causing scoring, indentations, and/or distortion. To solve this problem, a softer material than metal should be used.
In this short video, Ken uses a table saw and a drill press to show you how to make vise jaws out of ABS plastic to protect your delicate parts. It is a very simple and practical project, and plastic vise jaws can even be custom-shaped to enable the perfect fit for your projects parts. Be sure to check this channel out regularly for episodes using Plasti-Block™ plastics and get inspired by Ken’s creativity!

The ‘Alternative Tuesday’ segment is a twist and exciting addition to the Acutabove Woodworking channel that was previously dedicated to woodworking. We are excited - along with Ken - to show the benefits of working with plastics.
Plasti-Block™ materials offer rich and vibrant colors that will not chip or fade quickly, are resistant to water and many chemicals, and enable you to build projects that are not very practical with wood or other materials.
Kennyearrings1 has many creative and inspiring ideas and will show you how to make a variety of your own personalized items such as kitchenware, keepsakes, and many more.
