The Veritas bench is the most solid and versatile bench on the market, and with our patented (and popular) twin-screw vise, our large front vise and four brass bench dogs, it meets all your clamping needs.
It is an exceptionally solid bench with truss-rod construction that lets you tune climate-induced slackness out of it at any time. The bench trestle is a straightforward design — all butt joints, no mortise and tenon work — but more rigid than any other.
The twin-screw vise is a full-width end vise that has 12" of clamping capacity and can be used for side or top clamping with no racking, even when clamping in a single dog row. The chain drive maintains jaw parallelism. When you want a jaw skewed to equalize clamping force on a slightly irregular workpiece, a spring pin can be released for independent screw operation up to one turn in either direction. The front vise has a 1-1/8" diameter screw and 13" of clamping capacity.
Other Veritas bench accessories are compatible, such as our Wonder Dog® clamp and our hold-down.
The bench top consists of two laminated maple slabs and a birch plywood center trough, giving a working surface of 26" x 76" (vise closed). The slabs are pre-drilled with a double row of 3/4" dia. dog holes that result in a symmetrical 7-3/4" grid. Bench height is 35". Each measures 10-3/4" x 72-3/4" x 2" thick and weighs 40 lb. Once the top is assembled, the working surface is 26" x 76" (vise closed).
The bench is available with either a pair of our cast-iron bench legs (33" high, 23" wide with wooden stretchers and 48" long truss-rod assemblies) or a traditional hardwood base.
Total weight is 230 lb for #05A01.01 and 315 lb for #05A02.01. Some minor assembly is required.
Bench parts, twin-screw vise and bench dogs are made in Canada and USA.
