vise on top of torsion workbench


Recommended Posts

I would reinforce the torsion box top so that the corner you are going to mount the vise on is solid - and I would get bolts for fastening the vise that are long enough to go all the way through the top with nuts and washers.

All the way through the bottom in case Chet’s was not clear. Fasten through the entire top...both skins. 

 

yeah good idea, think the top will flex down when prying on the vice with something? havent seen how solid the torsion is

2x’s as in the the first boards on the end of the box? If so, that’s the way I would go.

Part of this depends on how much the torsion box overhangs the base itself, but unless you plan on doing some pretty heavy duty work in the vise like beating on metal parts, you should be okay.
