    Very good find! $35 is a real steal for a vise. I have worked with a QR mechanism like that before; they are a real joy to use.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Good find, I noticed especially the care he takes to have the frame square and flat.

    I like his stuff as he really takes the care to take it to the next level. He is a master woodworker for sure.

    Nice score on the work bench vice @58Chev . Does it matter if the vise is heavy or light to be a good vise for counter weight on the workbench .

    Always willing to learn .

    I think the bench is heavy enough that another weight won’t even matter, the bench aint moving anywhere.

    Old thread.

    Just updating the information on this thread as I got this in an email today. The first few chapters of Schwarz’s new book makes an interesting read.

    Thanks for sharing, Jim. Very timely arrival of this piece, too. Just in time for your Roubo bench build.

    You got that right. Looks like I will be trying loose draw bored tenons to join the top slabs. Should be an interesting experience.

    Guess we will have to wait for some warmer weather before anything happens in the shop, eh?

    Sounds like a very interesting joint.

    A novel approach to a woodworking bench. Looks like a winner.

    It is a different way of making a bench. I also saw where Rob Crosman use layers of MDF for the bench top. Might be a way to go. Also nice idea of changing the bench heights.

    The jack to raise and lower the bench is a good idea.

    Just saw this today, some really good ideas here, kind of a hybrid but looks to be very practical.
