      I can't tell how many of these tools and/or techniques go back to our period, but it's an interesting little text, with some very helpful images.

      I think the post vice is particularly ingenious and am planning on making a version that uses a piece of rope instead of the bar and rod shown in the book. I know of at least one medieval illustration that shows an artisan clamping something down with a strap held down with his foot, so it's a very short jump to this vice.
