    This vice has served me very well for thirty years. It is based on a design which was submitted to Fine Woodworking by Brian Johnson, of Sacramento. The jaws are tightened by a cam.

    I do not have it permanently at my bench but only when I have to sharpen.
    While it is nice to have acquired this Disston vice, at least I do not have to move a panel saw backwards and forwards when using the wooden vice.

    That is a good looking saw vise. I had to make a saw vise as part of my pre - apprenticeship course in 1965 when I was 15 y.o. My version had the jaws wedges into a V cut in the frame to hold the saw
