I want a leg vice on my bench. I also want it with a wooden screw. Been surfing eBay and Gumtree forever and yesterday this popped up. In a job lot with a saw sharpening vice and a couple of seized up old hand screws.

It was very dusty and dry, and it’s had lots of incidents with a saw, poor thing. But some sanding, shaping and oiling and it’s looking like it’ll be great.

Great find! After a general cleanup, I suggest immersing it in raw linseed oil for a few days.

Good luck with the vice.
