    my car is not HAMB friendly but this tool I fabbed up can be used for any patch work. I had a rusty area under the rear seat in which there is no aftermarket piece for. It has a couple of different angles that I could of pounded in but I wanted to build this thing anyway! I scrounged all the pieces from work in various "junk buckets" and used the company lathe and mill to make it all fit! Total cost=nil!

    My experience with blast cabinets and shop vacs was never good. Looks like cyclone would help a bunch. For the vacuums my best luck has been using kirbys.

    There is nothing inside. The top tube goes down about 4 inches. The rest is hollow. The vacuum sucks from the top and the sand comes in from the side and centrifugal force lets the sand fall into the pail. http://woodgears.ca/reader/walters/cyclone.html
    I made it the same as this one only out of steel.

    I've seen some places that are like an operating room, others are so fucked up that if a tornado went thru there, the tornado would actually put some shit away. Lol[/QUOTE]

    Guess I need a tornado.... yes, there's a reason I'm building a new shop and this is one of them.

    I inherited a very old Black and Decker #8 Nibbler awhile back and although it does serve a purpose, I found it to be too cumbersome for regular use so it just sat on a shelf in a shop cabinet for a long time until I had an idea to make a simple little stand to hold it the other day. It's just tacked up for now but is functional as is. I will finish weld the tubing and then add a flat table with a hole for the cutting head to drop into. This is set up to be removable should I ever need it to be and since it has a locking power switch, It Frees up both hands to work the material with. The round center piece is intentionally raised to contain chips in one area and let them spill out beneath if needed. This thing chomps through .125 aluminum like a hot knife through butter. I total cost so far is $1.87 for the hardware haha

    Y I W O R K Ever think about mounting the nibbler downside up. I use my power shear mounted in my vice with a foot control. works good and advisability is exceptional.

    reyn. Thanks for that info....edzackery what I needed....

    Olcarguy - I'm not opposed to that in a pinch but I tend to like things as stand alone as possible to keep the vise(s) free for other uses and to minimize the number of setups to finish a project. Thanks for the idea.

  15. So, you got a lot of vises or vices? LOL
     
  16. A vise (American) or vice (British) is a mechanical apparatus used to secure an object to allow work to be performed on it.
     

  17. ViCe - noun
    1. an immoral or evil habit or practice.
    2. immoral conduct; depraved or degrading behavior: a life of vice.
    3. sexual immorality, especially prostitution.

    ViSe , noun and transient verb.

    Main Entry: 1vise
    Pronunciation: \ˈvīs\
    Function: noun
    Etymology: Middle English vys, vice screw, from Anglo-French vyz, from Latin vitis vine — more at withy
    Date: 1500
    1 : any of various tools with two jaws for holding work that close usually by a screw, lever, or cam 2 : something likened to a vise <economic vise of slow growth and rampant price increases &#8212; David Milne>
    &#8212; vise·like \-&#716;l&#299;k\ adjective

    Thought I'd chime in so here's my oxy acetylene welder. The wheels are 100+ years old and I made the tires out of 1" thick rubber out of a remnant pile at the rubber supply. The box pivots on an axis on either end so it stays level when the cart is pushed around. Very fun project. Complete with pin striping:) Here you go folks-[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Outside of the US, the only accepted spelling is viCe for both meanings. ViSe is an Americanism.

    See the attached website for further reference:

    So you're both right. Or Vice Versa. :)

    But what about the tires/tyres that we carry around in our trunk/boot, not to mention all the wrenches/spanners we have?

    Someone should print up a "translation book of automotive terminology" for the speech challenged hotrodders out there. :D
