Last summer 2013, Christopher Schwarz along with many other tremendous woodworkers gathered in Georgia to build some of the finest Roubo workbenches possible via the French Oak Roubo Project. Lake Erie Toolworks was also the proud builder of the massive wooden vise screws and threaded legs that made up the leg vises on the benches that were constructed at this event.
With this as a backdrop, Chris had recently posted an update on his Popular Woodworking Blog that spoke about a “magic tapered stick” that he used essentially as a replacement for the parallel guide and stop on the bottom of his leg vise. We liked this post so much that we are re-broadcasting this to our audience that may not have caught this update. Therefore, you can click on the attached link to see the writeup as well as a quick video that gives you the low-down.
We hope you enjoy.
