    Re: Bench vice

    Veritas has a great one that I have been using for several years and love. It can be bought at Lee Valley or I believe Woodcraft has it as well.

    It has two different size, removable plates that can be inserted on the top for either small or large pieces. So far, I have only used the small one and I have done pieces up to 18 inches tall. I highly recommend.

    Al,
    I think yer talking bout a holdfast...

    apperently there are different types,
    i used the hammer in type, built like the number 7.. but here at this link is another one of a different design,,,
    http://www.rockler.com/ecom7/product...ilter=holdfast

    that link shows a holdfast forsale, not the tap in type, looks like the working end of a bar clamp...

    $24.00 each

    if your wood vise has a retractable dog on the outer jaw, check out the bench dogs and pups ... they dont crush your carving as bad....

    Think what you are referring to is 'Toggle Clamps.' If so, Woodcraft stocks them in several sizes. You should be able to find them on Woodcraft's web site. If not, think their number is 1-800-535-4486, at least that's what I've got scribbled next to their name here.

    I would like to find a dealer who handles hold down clamps for the top of benches.These are attached to the top of the bench so that the work piece is held to the top for mallet and chisel work.Thanks Al...
