Vice Jaw Leather


Recommended Posts

I don't know if you have a shoe repair shop around but years ago I backed a electric pallet jack over my foot and it tore up the leather on the toe of my steel toe shoes and took it to my shoe repair to have it fixed and he used something to bond the patch to the steel.

And yes, I was extremely happy to be wearing heavy steel toed shoes that day.

For those who use genuine leather on jaw vises, is any maintenance required? In my experience, un-oiled leather tends to get dry and brittle after a while.

I used much thinner leather n my Roubo vise no issues but nothing this thick before in fact I was a bit surprised when it came how thick it was. we shall see how it holds up.
