A handcrafted twin screw vice dating from the 1940s/50s
A highly sculptural looking twin screw vice, hand-crafted during the 1940/50s. Twin screw vices such as this one are surprisingly rare, even today. The single screw version dominates. Old wooden craft and woodworking tools are of specialised interest, but this object simply shouts "skilled home craft" in the finest, time honoured, tradition - and its "oil rig" shape make it look fine as a table or shelf display.
