Still pretty raw and liable to ask dumb questions.
I’ve recently patched-up and installed an old bench vise and am pleased as pie to have it.
Not sure how to keep the grease (not excessively applied) from getting on my wood. Is it merely a case of making damn sure the workpiece doesn’t touch the guide rods or thread? Or is there some ‘clothing’ I am supposed to install over them to keep their mucky parts from contacting my precious timber?
