In some cases, you may have a workpiece that cannot be held properly for making cuts on a flat table surface or against a fence. An example of this could be cutting a mortise in a leg using a drill press vise (Figure 22-51).
Figure 22-51. A drill press vise is used for gripping workpieces.
To accomplish this task, make a sliding table to hold your vise like the one shown in Figure 22-52. Also use the fence extensions and stops (Figure 22-21) to control the length of the cut.
