He Gives Each Of His Kids A Bench Vise As A Birthday Gift
I have 5 young children and Iím trying my best to instill in them skills for building, repairing and tinkering. I figure the best way to do this is to let them practice, so I have given each of them a bench vise as a birthday or Christmas gift. I pick vises up at flea markets or garage sales and the kids all have their own workbench space. Itís a mess but theyíre learning. I have 4 boys ages 3 to 8, and a girl 9. ďWhen you want to work on a bike but donít have a bike shop mount, suspend the bike from two ropes attached to the ceiling. Use adjustable loop knots so you can easily adjust the bikeís elevation(Ryan Van Der Bill, Sioux Falls, S. Dak.)
