The Package Deal!
As a Veritas distributor, I have assembled a “discounted” package deal of the Veritas items I shipped with all my benches – you’ll need them and I highly recommend them!
Veritas® Package Deal
Item 01S0001 | $374.40 Includes Free Shipping!
*Sorry, but this package deal is only available to US customers in the Continental 48 states at this time. All other customers, please see Note 1 at bottom of listings.
This package includes all of the items shown below. The Veritas Twin-Screw Vise is set for a standard screw spacing of 16-7/8″ on center, but you can place the screws closer together for smaller benches by cutting down the chain cover and removing links from the chain. This is the vise I use in the bench video series as the tail vise. This package also contains 2 pair of 6-3/4” long square bench dogs, 2 pair of 4-3/8” round bench dogs and an extra 1-1/8” vise handle to be used in your front vise so you have matching handles on all of your bench vises. If you are building a bench 33” or wider, please see Note 2 at bottom of listing.
The Veritas® Twin-Screw Vise, Item 05G12.21
This is the only non-racking full-width end vise on the market. You can clamp anything anywhere in the vise and the jaws stay parallel.
The chain drive ensures parallelism and eliminates the racking common in other vises. It can be operated using either handle.
Even better, a spring-loaded lock pin lets you disengage the chain for controlled jaw skewing needed to equalize pressure on slightly out-of-square work.
To build the vise, you will need to provide two hardwood jaws per my bench video.
An Extra Veritas® 1-1/8” Vise Handle, Item 05G12.03
I’ve included this extra handle to make all the vise handles on your bench match!
2 Pair Veritas® Square Bench Dogs, Item 05G02.01
Traditional bench dogs have a rectangular cross section and a side spring. The mortises for them are usually milled into a bench during construction – as shown in my bench series video. Because the mortises are angled slightly toward the vise, retrofitting rectangular dogs can be a complex process. (I recommend round dogs for retrofits.)
These dogs have 5/8″ x 3/4″ shanks, are 6-3/4″ long, and have solid brass faces to avoid damage to edge tools.
2 Pair Veritas® Round Bench Dogs, Item 05G04.02
These round bench dogs are made from solid brass rod and can be installed in any bench by drilling a 3/4″ hole. Brass dogs are non-corroding and kind to your tools. The combined crosshatching and 2° inward slope of the face hold wood securely. The side spring lets the dog slide smoothly, but holds it well at any desired projection.
