Good 4th of July…designing my new workbench and wondering what a good tail/wagon vise benchscrew would be? Looking at ease of installation and cost.

Thank you

I’ve had these two for five years now. Can’t beat the price and they work very well. An added advantage is no handle sticking out to walk into.

You might look at the Veritas “Inset Vise”. If you should decide on one, you need to space your dog holes about every 2-1/2” and, set it in so it is close enough to the front edge of the bench so you can clamp and use a rabbet plane or clamp the workpiece flush with the edge for other reasons. Also, they have at least three types of interchangeable jaw(s). Some people might not like this vise but I have used one for a few years now and like it a lot.

Check out Yost Vises. I had a great customer service experience with them recently when I bought some of their parallel clamps.

Have your say...
