Yup- read that book too. I’m not a big fan of the LV twin screw – too many issues with this one, and at $300 – way out of my budget even if it was perfect.

I like the tail vise for it’s ability to hold pieces vertical between it’s front jaw and bench. I think it’s a very versatile vise. that, and the shoulder vise. only thing is – they are much more intricate to build and install compared to a cast front/end vise. so before I get into any final designs and bill of parts- I want to make sure I’m not missing anything.
