Workbench Design

As always I’m very grateful to anyone who makes the time to comment on my postings here, and I do my best to respond in a helpful manner. On the back of my last write up on the wooden try squares, Shawn was kind enough to ask a question about my workbench and in particular the vise – so I’ve put together a quick workbench review. There is a bit of a write up here, but just to highlight the benefits they are as follows: No bending down to adjust pins; low cost (especially if you make use of an off-the-shelf vise screw); more-than-acceptable performance. In addition, mine’s a looker, too, thanks to Richard Maguire’s wooden vise screw. Now it’s not perfect, and some folks may have noticed in the videos how the vise can rack (I think I made it worse by making it a touch too big). Along with the vise screw there was some leather enclosed.
