The Benchcrafted Glide Leg Vise takes its design cues from a traditional leg vise with a wooden screw, but this contemporary iteration works more smoothly, easily and quickly. And it cinches down hard on a workpiece with little torquing effort by the user. Benchcrafted calls it “effortless workholding” – and that’s true, once you get the Glide properly installed. It’s a little more work than installing a wooden screw but once you’re done, this
vise is a joy to use.
