Ok, so I am in the planning stages of building my first work bench. It is going to be a hybrid 21st century bench. I have the idea of a removable moxen vise for the one end which leaves me with the leg vise and tail vise.
I must ask, are all the manufacturers for these vises smoking CRACK!? A leg vise is going to cost me between $250-$400 for a screw and pin?? And a decent tail vise starts at $175? Really? So I’ll have $600 in my bench before I buy my first plank? I can see my wife shooting me in the face!
Anybody know where I can get these for cheaper? And, no, I don’t care if it’s Chinese as long as it holds wood…
