Pattern Makers Vice - Leather
This is the leather that can be glued to the jaws of your pattern makers vice. You can choose to only glue the leather to one aluminium jaw (we find this works well for our plane making work), or you can buy 2 pieces of leather and glue them to both jaws.
If you order 1 piece of leather, you will receive the leather shaped to suit the front jaw. If you order two pieces of leather, you will receive both the front jaw leather and the leather cut out to suit the back jaw.
The leather is cut slightly oversized to allow you to trim the edges once it has been glued. We recommend gluing the smooth side to the aluminium jaw, leaving the rough side to hold the work piece.
We use contact adhesive glue to attach it on to the vice. You can get this in spray cans or wipe on form.
Thickness of leather is approx 1.5mm.
