Default Cutter's Vise

Cutter's Vise



This is Round 2 of the thread that began over a year ago under the title of "Can this Vise be Saved?" It soon became "Cutter's Vise" for all general purposes so that's what I'll call it here. Many of you have asked, prodded and reminded me about it from time to time. I have usually replied, "Manana." I haven't had time, energy or the heart to wrestle with it; okay, okay, here's the truth - I am too lazy to sit here for hours re-entering the (nearly) 400 posts that constituted the thread, plus the pictures. Can you imagine how long that would take? I can't either. But I know for sure that I did not want to do it that way. So there had to be a some other way; I wanted the new members unfamiliar with the original thread to know what they heck we are talking about and even we charter members might need a refresher course, but I have no motivation to direct traffic to the old site. So the thread had to be established somewhere else but again, I lacked the skills and the proper motivation to do it.

Well, the obvious solution to the problem was to find a woman to do it!
(There will now be a short intermission to allow the sound of flying objects to subside.)
You can discover who when you read the Prologue. But let me say this: she has worked very hard for a long time to bring the Vise back to life. Not many of our members could have done it, probably no one else would have done it and I am profoundly grateful to her.

I want to make this very clear - I am not trying to divert traffic from SFT. I am using my website to direct traffic to SFT and to supplement our server.
So the thread now resides on my website where all and any of you can go to read it in it's entirety with few exceptions (see the Prologue). It is not an active thread, it is only the interrupted discussion we had between February & June of last 2004, before the Mad Banner ran amok. This is the active thread & all comments and discussion will resume here. I hope we can all have as much fun as we did with Round 1 and this time, I hope we can find a way to save Cutter's Vise. I look forward to all of your comments and suggestions.

Follow this link to my homepage, see Cutter's Vise and click on the Prologue.

Cutter your links on your page throws me off and kills my Firefox browser.
I have DSL so it is not a big deal.

I wonder if it is by design?

AND, once again, this famous vise saga is sponsored by Uncle Franz Secret Labs, where you can buy your electrolytic derusting supplys.
For Texas and Arizona members, Cutter is a distributor for Uncle Franz Secret Products, so you can save on shipping.

LOL, nope. But I thought Firefox was bullet proof?
Jeez, I've had at least a dozen different computers & connections test the links. I wonder what that's all about? What happens if you c&p the address?

Edit: Hmmm, I just opened a Firefox page and went straight to the homepage, then to the prologue without a hitch. So now I wonder if its maybe some kinda of anti-Texas routine running in your browser?

another top thread (and more hours lost to reading stuff on the net )

the idea of the grease nipples (zerks I think you called them) made me think if its possible to turn the vice itself into a hydraulic cylinder and force itself appart by pressurising it via a grease nipple. I don't think the design of this vice would lend itself to that though.
