The Ad Vice

The Ad Vice has evolved from the European carver’s vice, but, as Douglas Coates mentions on the website, one of the most important features is the clamping mechanism. With most benches these days lacking the front apron of the Nicholson style, this design ‘locks the vice to the bench top but also pulls it in to the face edge of the top’, to quote the web page. The vice has been developed in conjunction with Klaus from Two Lawyers Tools.
I think it’s great to see this sort of evolution and innovation in tools. Please take a look at the website, Douglas has some great work and some very interesting links.
