General information about Indian benches:
Indian benches are very popular among binders. In Finland, they have been sold here also for a very long time.
Characteristic of Indian benches is a certain appearance of a handmade product, the finish is often not on top of the last one, and after the surface treatment the product has not been wiped off at least every place, but there are residues left in the product. The jaws work very well with the most commonly used size 8 # - 14 # hooks, the jaws often have a grip-increasing hook groove where the hook bend is placed, depending of course on the jaw model. Many, on Indian benches, tie even bigger hooks and smaller ones, it again depends on what kind of jaws it is.
The great popularity of the benches is based on the functionality in fly tying and the low price, as long as you remember the above things and keep some kind of sense in your demands. The more expensive "western" brand benches then already have a choice to refine.
The quick-release bench is easy to use. The upper lever is lightly pressed so that the tips of the jaw open approx. 1-2 mm. The lever does not need to be pressed hard, and in extreme cases there is a risk of the brass mounting block of the jaws cracking. The jaws are made of steel and slightly bent, giving the compressive force and the restoring force of the steel itself.
The jaws of this bench have a hook groove that is worth using, the hook in the hook groove stays much better in the jaws. The hook bend is placed in the hook groove and the bench adjustments put the hook in a suitable position.
The clamping force of the jaws of the quick-release bench cannot be adjusted separately from any screw.
