Benchcrafted Glide leg vise

Recommended Posts

When I first built my bench I got two of these thinking I would put one on opposing legs. Only installed one and I see no reason for the second. The whole thing is in a new yet opened box. It has been sitting around in the shop for a few months so of course there's some things on the cardboard but it is never been assembled or installed. Is the   rougher looking casting with blonde wood knobs. Not the shiny polished

I do not have a second criss cross. 

Will sell for 220 shipped

What a shame!  I just ordered one a week ago!  Great deal for someone building a bench!

Can't, too busy snapchatting my Yolos.  

So I'm a noob, where do you get the crisscross, if it doesn't have one already? Doesn't it require that?

Edit: nevermind, I found the crisscross separately on highland-ww, and the explanation for how to use the vise with or without one.

I wouldn't even consider using it without the criss cross. that's like putting a corvette on blocks. .

Yeah makes sense. Anyway, I'd buy it when I'm up thxgiving week, unless someone else has dibs already (assuming you can wait another week before I'm up there).

It's not my fault your keeping your bench stuck on dial up when high speed fibre optic is just a plug away.

An item typically purchased by a man who was ahead of his time and at the forefront of a trend.  Knockoffs and wannabes will follow, and will be purchased by hordes of posers and bandwagon riders.  The latter will have deep-rooted envy of the authentic original, and will project their insecurities upon them with passive-aggressive and dismissive gestures, but all the while will suffer a gaping hole where a soul ought to live. Demoralized.  Inferior.  And they know it.

LOL :D
