The VX 20 Leg Vise is a versatile, economical quick action vise mechanism that may be used as a leg vise or can also be made into a quick action face vise or be used just as you would use a conventional vise screw and nut. The VX 20 is simply installed by drilling holes through the bench leg or apron and mounting with wood screws. A Delrin bearing is screwed into a counter-bored hole in the front of the bench leg or apron and supports the weight of the vise jaw.
The Leg vise handle is attached to the shaft with a quick release pin which allows the jaw to be removed entirely in seconds. The pin system also allows you to select either a wooden hub and handle or a metal hand wheel to customize your vise. The hand wheel or wooden hub is sold separately to allow the consumer to fully customize the vise.
