La Forge Royale Miter Jack Wood Screw and Nut

Benchcrafted may have sold out of their La Forge Royale Miter Jack kits, but the good news is that they still have the metal bits portion of the kit available for sale for $38 on their website. (Link here to Benchrafted’s Blog on this topic).

The other good news here is that Nick at Lake Erie Toolworks also has a few wooden vise screws and tapped nuts for this kit ready to go for those that may have interest here.  The price is $150 for a wood screw & nut combination which also includes domestic shipping.  If you have interest here, drop Nick an email quickly as their sure to go fast.  info@lakeerietoolworks.com La Forge Royale Miter Vise, Lake Erie Toolworks.

Plate 11 Workbench + Lake Erie Toolworks Leg Vise = One Amazing Roubo

What happens when you sync up a Plate 11 Workbench Kit with a Lake Erie Toolworks wooden vise kit? You end up with one amazing Roubo Workbench that will help you build some tremendous things in your home workshop.

This said, if you happen to be attending the upcoming Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event in Round Rock (Austin), Texas coming up on November 21-22, 2014, you will get to see and ‘kick the tires” on this great Roubo for yourself.

Our good friend Mark Hicks from Plate 11 Bench Company will be attending this event held at Techshop to demonstrate the great features of his workbench kits, but he will also be offering a special price on a fully built and ready to go Roubo Workbench that comes equipped with a wooden leg vise from Lake Erie, a Criss-Cross from Benchcrafted and an iron planing stop from Peter Ross all for just $3200. Simply too good to pass up.
