This is my new vice innovation and addition to my work bench .
Instead of posting a long explanation I include a video link which will give you much a better look at it and should be easier to understand than my usual rambling .
Also note the T Shirt that I am wearing in this video .


I think the Link to the video is not working Klaus…

Wonderful innovative vise and a wonderful bench too Klaus. I had the idea that the belt you used for gears on your twin tail vise is so versatile that it could even be used as an automobile timing belt.

yea i could not get the video either, but i did look at the pictures you have here, what a beautiful vise.

Good Morning
The video on you tube has been a problem to get it up and running but the video is up now and this link should work for you .

Thanks lanwater
The video should work now if not let me know .

Thanks Mike
That is funny but those belts are so versatile and can be of use in many applications even cars and I am referring to toy car wheels .

Thanks Grizzman
Sorry about that but try it now but the video is almost 19 min.long so sit down and watch and let me know if you have any questions .



Klaus, your amazing.
Thanks for the video tour of you bench, well thought out.

Wonderful bench, wonderful vises. The step on lever vise is still my favorite and I do plan to make it.

Great bench. And a really nice design for the vises. Makes me wonder if I should replace my current benches with something better! Well done.


That’s a very nice addition to an already handsome workbench. I’d love to watch the video but 19 minutes on dial-up would take at least three weeks to download! ;-(
