Announcing the Lake Erie Toolworks – 2X Wood Vise – Fastest Threaded Workbench Vise On the Planet!

If you’ve been pondering the idea of building your dream workbench but just haven’t been able to settle on the proper vise to use, we have your answer.  Announcing the new Lake Erie Toolworks – 2X Wood Vise – Which happens to be not only the largest wooden production vise on the market, but is also the fastest threaded workbench vise on the planet – be it metal or wooden.

This brand new vise is powered by a massive 3″ diameter screw that has a 1 TPI (1 Turn per Inch) double start thread.  The vise action can also best be described as “smooth as butter”.  This makes for a simply amazing and game-changing workbench vise to help you craft your woodworking projects in record time.

We’ve been building and testing out prototypes of the 2X Wood Vise for quite some time but we’ve always had a challenge in finding a lumber supplier that could provide a stable supply of the huge billets of hard maple.  It must be all that clean living we do, but we’ve finally lined up a reliable source.

Lake Erie Toolworks is now announcing a pre-order special via our website on the 2X Wood Vise if you place your order by July 31, 2018 at 12 PM EDT.

So if you’ve been dreaming of the perfect vise – now’s your chance to jump in, because the water is FINE!
