Anyone happen to know where i can get one of those fancy front vises with 2 handles? Or should i just buy 2 separate front vises? >.<

Similar to this one:

Having trouble finding anything similar in any online stores, being in Finland im sure i wont find it locally so the web is my only option…

That looks like the Veritas twin screw vise from Lee Valley. www.leevalley.com

I’m also looking at vises, so I went to the LeeValley website to check out the double screw vise. I was amused by the refreshing directness of their assembly disclaimer. It was right on:

“IMPORTANT NOTE:

If you are the kind of person who only looks at instruction sheets after something goes wrong, this is one product where you should mend your ways. If you ignore these instructions, we can almost guarantee trouble. Please try to save all your innovative design urges until after you have installed the vise. As a bare minimum, at least read through the instructions before you start being creative.

The two easiest ways to screw up are:
• By drilling holes in the wrong place and at an angle.
• By using warped wood with the intention of straightening it out with bolts, screws and brute force later.

It isn’t a lot of fun to follow instructions exactly but this is one time when it will save you a lot of grief. “

Try Plektra Trading in Helsinki. they are Veritas reseller. I am making a new bench at the moment, but using a more traditional end vise – e-mail me if you are interested. Good luck with the project

You can see if on this page:

http://diyhomewoodworking.com/workbench-woodworking/

But I wouldn’t trust anything from that website—it’s a bit of a scam.
