I searched the forum for posts about short leg vises, but I couldn’t find any. I’m guessing that means that I might be headed in the wrong direction. In any case, my question is how short can a leg vise be, and still be equal to or superior to an average face vise with respect to holding power.
This being lumberjocks, I’m betting that there is no variation on a workbench component that hasn’t been attempted multiple times. If anyone has a short leg vise, which I would define as being less than 25”, I’d be very curious to hear your experience and see a picture (if you have one handy). Are you happy with the vise? How does it compare to other leg vises you have used? Is there anything you would have done differently?
Thanks in advance…
