Assembling the Classic Leg Vise
Now that we're shipping Classic Leg Vises we thought we'd post this video on how to assemble them. The process is also described in the instructions, available on our downloads page.
Sometimes we get emails about why our products require assembly. It's not laziness (well, not entirely!) but rather efficiency. We can store and ship the packaged vises in a much smaller space and more efficiently than assembled ones. This is especially true with the Glide. An 8" diameter handwheel with an 18" long shaft takes up huge amounts of space, not to mention its quite difficult to pack and ship safely, and inexpensively. There are huge amounts of void fill with an assembled Glide. It's not pretty.
We also like to use stock box sizes when packaging our products. They are readily available, inexpensive, and there are no die or printing costs. We can also change our packaging on the fly if need be.
The Classic only takes about 90 seconds to assemble.
