    Gun Vise

    I've been doing a little bit of gun smithing lately, so thought it would be worth building a gun vise for working on and cleaning rifles. Came across the following plans.

    I got all the stock cut out tonight, changing the design some, but using the same clamp feature.

    That is on my to build list one of these days. That is the design I like the looks of, will be anxiously waiting to hear your review of it once completed.
    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.

    I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.

    Looks good!

    That is the kind of basic tool that can make even basic maintenance so much easier.

    I built one ~ 35 years ago, but certainly not as nice as what you are building. Let me just say that you will really appreciate how handy they are - a really great way to hold your gun while working on it. Actually, I pulled mine out of storage just yesterday to work on my neighbor's new 22 magnum rifle to install a scope mount.

    Must be the same plans I used. If done again, at the butt end I would put up a 'V' to hold the rifle upside down. Can be difficult to work on the right side of the rifle as shown. For my guns, working on the right side is often necessary. BTW, I used tanned deerskin for protection of the barrel and wood.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
