I developed a new leg vise that uses a type one lever instead of the old type three lever design that has been around for hundreds of years .

The vise has no crank handle or wheel it is operated with a foof pedal that does all the locking and thightenin in one step and leaves my hands free to place the work piece .

I include a video that explains the vise and a little of the background of this new vise .

Any way you can repost the Youtube video or send me a link to the sketchup plans. I am in the process of building a Ruobo bench and this vise looks awesome (love that is foot operated!).

I went to your youtube channel and could not figure out how to download the sketchup plans (for the first version of the vise).
