The Work­mate Hob­by­crafter

The Shed - - Tools -

This is a plas­tic-topped minia­ture Work­mate that can be clamped to a bench to act as a vice. It fea­tures small, off­set ver­sions of the orig­i­nal mov­able dogs to hold ir­reg­u­lar-shaped ob­jects. The defin­ing mov­able top forms a vice. The jaw edges formed by the two halves of the top have re­mov­able rub­ber to al­low them to safely grip eas­ily dam­aged work pieces.

The vice has a uni­ver­sal mount, which means that it can be set in an in­fi­nite range of ori­en­ta­tions to aid fid­dly work. The Hob­by­crafter is use­ful for hold­ing small ob­jects be­ing glued or sol­dered and, just like the orig­i­nal Work­mate, it en­ables folks with­out a shed with a work­bench and vice to do stuff them­selves.
