« Part 5: Gluing up the top Part 6 of Building The Holtzapffel Workbench series Part 7: Final Top Glue Up »

Many of you have asked me where I was getting my large wooden screws, for the large face vise on my bench. Well a new source has just come up. Over at Christopher Schwarz's blog, he just posted a new source for the wooden screws. Joe, the new guy making the screws, is having a sale on the wooden screws. They are $99/each through the end of March. This is a great deal if you are in the market for these large wooden screws.

I’m still waiting on the ones I’ve ordered and will post pictures when they show up.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention! I’ve wanted these screws on my Holtzapffel project – now there is a possibility.

Oh man. I thought his website would get crushed after Chris’s post. And now 2 or 3 thousand LJ’s will be looking. ;-)
I hope I can get my order in before he gets too backlogged.

thanks Mike. I need a bench and have been thinking about adding one to my shop. I don’t need the screws now but will in the near term.
