From time to time, even a woodworker will find a use for a machinist's vise. I don't have the bench space for a permanent installation, so I came up with the following: I mounted the vise on a piece of 3/4" plywood, then bored holes for two 3/4" dowels. Using the same spacing, I then drilled pairs of holes in the bench so I could choose where to mount the vise according to the job at hand.
