Looking at the forums, this seemed like the right place to ask.
Does anyone have recommendations for a 9” Bench Screw?
A little context…
I have been working through Norm Abram’s New Yankee Workshop book and blogging about it (You can see it here if you are interested)
I am getting ready to start on the next project in the book, the Workbench. The plans for the workbench in the book call for a 9” Swedish bench screw from woodcraft…I wasn’t able to find the specific bench screw it calls for so i did some googling and came up with a 9” Veener Press Screw that looks like it will do the job. You can check it out here
I need to do a little more exploring but it looks/sounds like what I need, and the price is definitely right.
Anyone reading this forsee any issues with using it?
Or, do you have any other recommendations?
I’ve also seen people on the internet recommend getting a long piece of all thread and making a bench screw…but I think I read somewhere that the number of threads (sorry if this is the wrong terminology) is wrong and will make it take FOREVER to actually clamp it down.
I will keep exploring and address the issue in the first Workbench blog where I detail all the materials necessary. But I’d also like to include any thoughts people have on the issue in the blog – this place is FULL of very knowledgeable people – which I love.
