New Lie-Nielsen Tail Vise Hardware
Rob Giovannetti has just posted a video on his new blog The Tattooed Woodworker showcasing the new Lie-Nielsen tail vise hardware.
My own frustration with typical tail vise hardware led me last year to reevaluate the traditional moving-block tail vise. It was during this quest that I decided to a try a wagon vise. The result was the Benchcrafted Tail Vise.
But my old bench was built with a traditional tail vise. And it desperately needs new "moving block" tail vise hardware (the old hardware is worn, sagging, and a major nag), and I've been patiently waiting several months for Lie-Nielsen to begin offering this hardware. Needless to say, the vise is incredibly beefy and offers some fantastic features that should make it run smoothly for quite some time. I can't wait to get my hands on one.
