Product Description

In the 19th and early 20th century, many vocational schools and commercial shops in France and its colonies were outfitted with Roubo-style benches and metal leg vice hardware. French hardware is typically made entirely of metal, whereas hardware from Britain and America usually features a T-shaped iron casting fitted with a sliding wooden handle. Benchcrafted designed theirs around the French model for better function and looks. Researching extant vices and benches, they discovered a number of features that have all but disappeared from modern vice manufacture. They have incorporated these, plus a few of their own, into the design of the Classic Leg Vice.
