Hi Y’all. I’m totally new to woodworking. Haven’t even done a project yet! I hope for my first project to be a work bench. I keep running accross the term “tail vice”. Can someone tell me what exactly that is. I can’t find a decent answer on-line. Also, do I need this on my work bench? The only vice I am familiar with is the standard screw the base to the bench top.

Hi,
A tail vice is a vice or bench screw on the end of a bench that allows us to use bench dogs. A vice on the side of a bench is typically called a front vice. I posted a bench project this morning that uses a tail vice screw. You can see it and the bench dogs in some of the photos. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/28152
