|SOBA PRECISION VICE - A NEW SHORT HANDLE|
↓ I cut up a 12.7mm thick bar, drilled a 14mm hole, and then marked up the square.
↓ It took an hour to file the hole square.
↓ Here is a trial fit on the vice. It is a good fit.
↓ I drilled a 10mm hole, slightly undersized, for the 10mm grip handle.
↓ I proceeded to mill a radius on each end of the handle.
↓ I pressed a 10mm bar into the undersized hole in the handle. The 10mm bar is an extremely tight fit and does not require glue or brazing.
↓ Here is the long vice handle fouling the cross slide handle.
↓ Here is the new short vice handle clearing the cross slide handle.
