Record woodworking bench vise

A friend got hold of two wooden bench vises, and gave me one! I restored it, which meant grinding lose the clutch that a previous owner welded shut, and cleaning and re-greasing it. Then I cut and installed two new wooden jaws. and it is ready to install.

Lightstand for a camping torch

No videos yet but I have been making stuff. I made these light stands out of a satellite speaker stand and aluminium plate that I bend with my new plate bender (video to follow). It houses a camping torch and can pivot down thereby becoming a portable spotlight that I intend to use in my videos. The torch can easily be removed.
