Detailed Description

Benchcrafted Crisscross Hardware

The Benchcrafted Crisscross supports the weight of the vise hardware and the chop (the moving vise jaw), allowing the Crisscross to smoothly "float" in and out, making the vise far more pleasant to use and eliminating the need to manually adjust a parallel guide when changing workpiece thickness. The Crisscross can be used on any leg vise installation, including ones using traditional vise screws rather than ones made by Benchcrafted. For someone who installed a Benchcrafted Glide Vise before the Crisscross mechanism became available, it is possible to upgrade your Glide Vise by purchasing the Crisscross Retro.

For someone who purchased the early model Glide Vise but has not yet built your bench, and you have access to a drill press, you can incorporate the Crisscross using either the Solo or Retro.

The only difference between the Solo and the Retro is that use of a drill press is highly recommended for the installation of the Solo, which of course is unlikely to be practical in a bench that has already been built. The built-in brackets that are used for attaching the Retro simply allow its installation without the need for a drill press.

Which Crisscross should you choose? — If you can put your bench leg on a drill press to drill the mounting hole, get the Solo. If not, get the Retro.
