We Were Wrong

When we designed and developed the VX20 leg vise hardware we thought this is it. It doesn’t get any better. This is one instance where it is good to be wrong! Our R&D department, working in conjunction with the engineering and manufacturing departments has been busy with a new concept that began about 4 years ago. The engineering department created an initial design while working with the manufacturing department to make sure the design could be made efficiently. The [...]

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

Grease is widely available at home centers and auto parts stores but you typically have to purchase a tube (used in [...]

New Products! Turned Rim Handwheels.

We have added some new handwheels to further allow you to customize your woodworking vise. These new handwheels have a square profile with a very nicely finished turned profile. They have a very nice feel in the hand. The large one is 8" diameter and is for use with the leg or face vise. The smaller one is 6" diameter and is for use with the wagon vise. The smaller diameter will keep the handwheel below the top of [...]
