For sale here is a highly desired LAW bench vise made by Lawerence Waldron. The vise remains in near mint condition having only been assembled. This is a later vise with an angled rotating handle and cork insert in the base. Part of the beauty of the vise is in its simple design. There is one knob to tighten the jaws and one to tighten the rotation. This is a fully rotating vise and in axis and parallel to the hook shank. The vise is incredibly smooth thanks in part to the Delrin head. The simplicity of the vise makes is quite durable ensuring a lifetime of use. This simplicity also allows for excellent access to the fly where many vises have levers and knobs in awkward places the LAW vise does not.
Lawerence Waldron cut his teeth as a precision machinist in the U.K. He also made bamboo rod building supplies and reels at one time. All of his products were made to order and nearly always involved a waiting list. Waldron has ceased making vises for several years now. This vise includes the original hex wrench and an extension post that screws in to the main post giving the tyer an extra 3" of height.
