  1. Help me understand this. Other than the situation of edge jointing a wider board with the aid of the deadman, why doesn't the twin screw like Klein's design basically replace the functions of the leg vise? Since I will tend to use a jointer for this operation, what will I miss having the twin turbo vs a BC Crisscross leg vise? Having to work without such vises in the past doesn't give me the intuitive sense to figure this out.
  2. I have followed various vise designs over the last two years or so and was under the impression that the crisscross version of the BC leg vise mostly dealt with the racking problem vs the initial iteration with the sliding board and pinboard at the bottom. I have a nice jointer and planer and don't see myself edge planing a long board, since I have a hybrid approach. If that's the case one of the turbo twin vises may serve my needs for the left front side pf the bench (right-hander). Thoughts?
  3. How would you compare and contrast the twin screw design and Benchcrafted’s crisscross leg vise? For one thing, the distance from the top of the bench and the screw is deeper with the Crisscross. Would you expect racking to be any different between the two? Also, how about using one of the twin screw vises in a tail position vs the BC tail vise?
