Found A Vise Today


My brother and I went to one of the largest gas engine shows anywhere today.

All I found was a lousy Emmert pattern maker's vise.

I've been living vicariously through your posts. How the hell do you hide those from the wife?

I don't. She does not care. I take care of all the bills, feed 5 people, and have been putting her through Nursing school.

If she complains, good luck finding another sucker to do all that.

Re: Found A Vise Today


What an awsome looking vice!

I bet my boys would like to have it for their furniture work. They just bought a 1,000+ lb 3/4" sheet steel table at the Eagle auction in Bowling Green a few weeks ago. Interested in trading for something?
