Thanks for being an active member here at iKC.  Without participation we'd be a pretty slow site.

I understand, allanm.

..and..

Can very truthfully state that 99+% of my PM's (individual communications here on iKC) are with 3 individuals .. JJ, Jan, & John Bamford. I too take my privacy VERY seriously.

Re: Your possible project using 5.56 casing ends. I believe the most economical approach would be for you  to fabricate the wooden clamping fixtures out of existing wood scrap that you've left over from previous projects that would ultimately end up working with your existing metal drill press vise.

It would be far easier & more economical to simply make inserts that would fit in your existing drill press vise !!!

.

However .. should you decide upon purchasing any of the listed items .. I highly suggest that you install metal "through rods" at the corners. This will greatly enhance the structural integrity of the vise. I am not a carpenter ..so.. I do not know the proper terminology used in designating the size of nails. Regardless .. choose a nail that is equal to or slightly exceeds the height of the vise & trim it such that its length is equal to the height of the vise. Then drill a hole @ each corner (equidistant from the edges, i.e. center the hole in the corners) that is ever so slightly larger than the chosen nail size. Such that the nail just drops in the hole. OR, simply chose whatever nail size you have on hand and can trim to the required length (equal to the height of the vise).

.

Then .. fill the hole with a good quality wood glue .. Elmers or Gorrilla or any good quality liquid adhesive that you have on hand. Then .. slide the the pre-trimmed metal pin into said hole & let cure overnight.

.

The addition of a metal through pin @ the corners will greatly enhance the structural integrity of the vise. Mine came with them already installed. Not all do.
