Vertical vice

Hello everyone.

Legacy sells their vertical vice, to hold the work piece so you can do dove tails and box joints. I would like to remind everyone here ,that you can make your own jigs to do the same things.  This is my second Vertical vice I've made, and it works pretty good. (of a matter of coarse there still is some room for improvement, but that's for another day.) I have only made box joints on this jig so far, but I don't see any reason why I couldn't do other types of wood joints, using this jig.
Its a simple design, made out of 3/4" plywood scraps, and two clamps. to hold the work in place on the Legacy. I use two wood clamps to attach this jig on to the Legacy, as well as tendons on the ends of the wood legs to hold the jig in place against legacy's rails.
I have used this jig with both the template follower and using it free hand, indexing it with the scale on the Legacy's rails.
If any one has some comments or suggestions, I would like to talk about it.
Talk to you all later.
