Decided I would make a leg vise for the bench I posted awhile back. It is just under 2” thick cherry that my late grandfather had squirreled away in our basement. I ordered a wood screw from Acer ferrous, its 24” long and 2.5” thick with 2tpi, they have a choice of hard maple, tiger maple, and black cherry for the hub, I went with the tiger maple, but that’s when I was going to make my chop out of maple. I may eventually order another one in cherry, and switch it out and use the maple in my wagon vise. The garter is custom made, I gave my friend (the one i made the machinist chest for) who does machinist work a couple brass plates I had in return he is making my garter out of one of them. Thanks for looking.

Thanks ralbuck. The garter is finished, just have to get it back to shop, drill out the holes for mounting, split it and polish it. Also need to pick up some transtint vintage maple dye for the tiger stripe maple hun (it’s way to stark against that cherry lol).
