Years ago, watching YouTube videos of master woodworkers use their high end tools, I developed a strong desire for a twin screw vise. I was completely sold on the twin screw vise design, but when I looked to buy one (or even just the hardware kit for one), my desire turned to envy, because there was no way I could afford to spend $150+ for one.
It didn’t take long before I designed my own version, and made sure I could make it for next to nothing. Is this vise as nice as one that’ll cost you $300? No. Will it clamp up a board with enough strength to hold my bodyweight, all while doing it for 1/30th the price? Yet bet your bottom dollar!
So if you’re suffering from from twin screw vise envy, give this one a try. And when you do, be sure to send me pics of your build so I can add them to the customer gallery!
