A Little Hinge Trick

I have done that before and it works well. I have a set of "Gater Gums" that I bought back when I was making a lot of pens for pressing them together as I did not have a dedicated pen press. They are basically leather with magnetic tape attached to the back. The magnetic tape holds it to the metal vise jaws and they work great for when you need to hold something that could scratch. I ordered them on a whim when I made larger order for pen supplies and I use them on the vise all the time. Easy to make using an old belt from your closet (those dang things tend to shrink over time and some peel and stick magnetic tape from the Home Center or Craft Store.

You can buy hinges made like that or you can buy the style you started with!  

A mortise mount or a half surface/ half mortise mount. This one is 1 5/16 x 1 1/2". 

It looks about the size you show.

Thanks Jess! Great tip again!
