Even if I win the lottery and build my ideal workbench in my ultimate workshop, I’m not sure I would want to have this beautiful leg vise out there. I’d be afraid that I’d nick it with a saw or dribble paint on it. I think it would go better on my dining room table. Then I could use it at Thanksgiving to hold the turkey for carving, or perhaps at Christmas to help slice that stupid fruit cake Aunt Sally always brings.

It comes in a nice kit (the customer has to provide the wood parts) including an 8″ diameter chromed cast iron hand wheel to turn the precision-rolled carbon steel acme threaded 1 1/4″ diameter screw with 4 tpi pitch, and has a spiffy rosewood handle, but at $325, the price seems high.

    That’s very cool, and very, very pretty, but why is there a space invader on the bottom?

    And can I get just the space invader?

  2. joe says:

    Oh, the space invader is their logo.
