Benchcrafted's Autumn Tent Sale


When we have a tent sale, we do it up right. First we call Ahmed the tent guy, and he comes over in a busted Land Rover, sets up the tent with some cousins. After a short nap, some tea and sweets, he then takes off his 1998 NIB Tommy Hilfiger shirt and Gap jeans, dons his white robe and picnic tablecloth do-rag and sets up to offer the best deals this side of Damascus.

Of course there is no actual Benchcrafted Autumn Tent Sale. But we do in fact have some things that we'd like to sell. And we like tents, incidentally. These are demo vises, or blems, or the only pair of vises that someone has returned to us. Unopened. Um, we're not kidding about the latter. We've had one return since we started this. Yeah, one return. That's one. Just one. Only one. Okay, onto the goods.

Note: All vises listed below feature our previous handwheel (pictured below)



Item #1 SOLD
Tail Vise. Brand new. Unopened. $339

Item #2 SOLD
Glide Leg Vise. Brand new. Unopened. $319

Item #3 SOLD
Glide Leg Vise. Demo (lightly used, no visible or functional wear) $295

Item #4
Glide Leg Vise. Blem (some casting voids on the back side of the handwheel where you'll never see them) $295 SOLD

Item #5 SOLD
Moxon Vise. Blem. Some roughness in the casting. No functional deficits. $129

Item #6 SOLD
Moxon Vise. Blem. Some roughness in the casting. No functional deficits. $129

Item #7 SOLD
Glide Leg Vise. Demo (lightly used, no visible or functional wear) $295

Item #8 SOLD
Glide Leg Vise. Demo (lightly used, no visible or functional wear) Baked flax finish on the handwheel. $295

Item #9
Handwheel knob. These are the rosewood knobs we use on our handwheels (see pic above). These didn't meet spec, but are completely functional with a little TLC. Sometimes the knobs are a tad wet when we turn them, and the hole becomes oblong. A quick pass through with a rat tail file should get them spinning nice. We usually hold onto these and replace every handwheel knob on our shop machines with these, but we've done as much as we can of that. These fit a 3/8 X 1-3/4 shoulder bolt. $6

Item #10
Handwheel knob. Same as item #9, only these fit a 1/2 X 1-3/4 shoulder bolt. $6

Shipping is not included. To buy anything, drop an email to info@benchcrafted.com with a list of what you want, and your mailing address. We'll email you a bill for the goods and shipping.

Now, where's Uncle Tannous gone with my Shawarma.....

    1. If you could see my face right now, it is beet-red. All I can say is: I'm an idiot.
