I was very fortunate to be the first recipient of the newly re-designed hand-wheels on Benchcrafted’s Tail Vise and Glide Vise. Wow. The craftsmanship is exactly what you would expect from Benchcrafted: beautifully designed, machined and finished; and they’re even beefier than the old wheels. In fact, the new wheels weigh almost twice as much as the previous ones. They feel great in your hands, and function beautifully. The added mass means that the Glide vise spins with incredible ease, and it adds to the feeling of control. Even the Tail Vise now has enough mass to spin open or closed for two or three turns. I’ve been working with the vises on a newly completed bench for a couple of weeks now. I’m thoroughly impressed.
