Yeah, I've been to that site before. If you click on your name, it will pull up all the ones attributed to you. I have six, the funny thing is I only built and or modified three myself. The others my dad built, but I shared them on SFT at one time. At least the site does give credit back to owner.

( Assuming the link does not change) I guess this guy did not read part two of Cutters Vise.


http://www.homemadetools.net/press-2
"Homemade press intended to aid in the separation of rusted vise jaws. Constructed from a length of I-beam, steel tubing, and chain. Powered by a bottle jack."

"DIYer Mar 28, 2014 5:32 PM
That should put the hurt on rusted stuff. But for this particular vise, this rig apparently didn't work."

I'm the founder of that site.

We know SFT to be one of the web's best sources of tool building ingenuity. You guys are currently at #13 out of thousands of sites on our top site list. All listings are fully credited to each builder and to SFT, and link directly to each build thread, so I hope we've been able to send you some good traffic.



Let me know if we've missed any, and we'll get them added in.

My only issue with your site, and it could be on my end-I dont know for sure, is that there is a pop-up that appears over the page and I can't seem to make it go away. Makes the site difficult to use. I am viewing from an Android phone.

Hey thanks for reporting that bug on Android, you're the second person this week to do so. We have it on our to-do list to fix. You should be able to just click once to remove it permanently, but it's obviously not working for all Android users.

We also give away the "50 Must Read Homemade Tools eBook" offered in the popup for free to forum folks, so you don't have to enter your email address to get it. You can just click this to download it for free:
