My Christmas present to myself was to retrofit a leg vise onto my old bench. It is made up a beam of yellow pine out of the abbey church. The idea for the screw mechanism I picked up from Allen Finch in his article, ”$20 Leg Vise,” in the April/May 2011 issue of American Woodworker.
More details about the build can be seen on YouTube (MonkWerks: Retrofitted Leg Vise)
