The BigWoodVise.com web site says that ordering is temporarily closed. I chatted via e-mail with Joe Comunale at Big Wood Vise to get the story.
Here’s the good news: It’s only a temporary thing.
Comunale, who works in the automotive industry, said his day job kicked into high gear after some layoffs. As a result, he’s been traveling a lot on short notice and hasn’t been home to make the ash vise screws, which won a Best New Tool award from us in 2009 and was featured on the LVL Workbench shown above.
He said things should return to normal in a few months. In the meantime, he decided to close ordering so he could fill his existing orders before taking on new business. If you have a vise screw on order, he’s working on it.
