Mobile Machinists Vise

A little metalworking Finds its way into my woodshop from time to time. When cutting metal, it's best to use a machinist's vise to get a better grip. Because it sticks up and is in the way, I can't permanently attach it to my woodworking bench. Instead, 1 built a simple platform from doubled-up 3/4-in. plywood with a 2x2 cleat screwed to the bottom. The platform allows me to temporarily mount my vise to my bench when needed. It spends the rest of the time on the shelf below the bench.
