German-made bench screws - front and tail vises, used by well-known German producers of workbenches. Construction Advice: The wooden face block for the vice should be, in height, 25 mm more than the thickness of your bench top. The Lake Erie screw can be used with either an external brass garter or an internal maple garter (you can even buy the garter itself for $8, but come on people, I hope you can make your own garter). And I might have been so satisfied with the result that I might not have built any more benches. This front vise is also suited for lefthanders and can be mounted on the right side of the bench. When I built my French workbench five years ago I had two choices for the vise screws: steel screws from China or steel screws from Eastern Europe.
Make your own veneer-press frames or gluing jigs with these extra heavy and sturdy press screws.

The choices today are far better, with steel and wood screws available from several continents. It would be very well adapted for use on a new bench, or on an already-finished bench, if you wanted to add a little more very solid and easy-to-install work-holding capacity. The Lake Erie screws are available in a wide variety of different configurations, from the most basic kit (just a single screw and nut) for $115 up to a deluxe twin-screw kit with brass garters for $355.
If I’d had all these choices five years ago, my French bench might have turned out different. Chris is a contributing editor to Popular Woodworking Magazine and the publisher at Lost Art Press. Maybe these bench screw guys should also sell the bits to drill the holes along with their premium packages.
This bench vice is very simple to install with the screws supplied - it is simply screwed in place under the bench.

These wood screws are much faster than my metal screws (it’s not even close) and grip every bit as fiercely. I saw several kits of them at the Woodworking in America conference and I can attest that the company didn’t send us a ringer.
Take a holesaw the size you want to enlarge to and drill through a block of wood on a drill press to get a straight clean hole. Run by Nick Dombrowski, this company makes maple vise screws that have details that I quite like. Though other species work great (I have ash and oak screws on my benches), some people want their screws to match their bench.
