Grease is the Word…. If You Want Your Leg, Wagon or Face Vise to Operate Smoothly!

The clamp shaft of the vises does not require any lubrication to operate smoothly. The internal mechanism however, does need grease for smooth operation.

The smaller diameter will keep the handwheel below the top of [...]

More Moravian….

We have have had a great response for our new Moravian leg vise hardware and X Link. So many requests that we ran out of our first prototype run of parts and are now making more. The Moravian leg vise is our original leg vise hardware with an integral front bearing added to it which allows the X Link to be tucked up close to the clamp shaft to take up the minimum amount of space. The round bearing [...]
