Chip's Wood Shop Live! A vise is born.

 This time I fixed the camera in one spot and not to my person.  I can see where different situations could call for each, but I suspect I will prefer the fixed angle when possible.  

In this episode, I harvest parts from a broken clamp and route a pocket for my homemade nutplate to fit inside my benchtop to engage the screw that will draw the vise in and clamp material against the bench dogs.

Now streaming on Twitch!

 Today I built and tested a setup for streaming on I've wanted to share my weekend garage therapy with interested people without the editing needed for my published videos. As this is my first test of live streaming, I am open to feedback and recommendations.

My projects in progress include a wooden bench top made of scrap butcher- block counter top, as well as a table top for my radial arm saw (RAS), including aluminum T-track.  I have some more modifications in mind to test on the RAS, which will need the table top to hold workpieces firmly in place.
