        I agree with Merle - you really owe him at least a six-pack more... Nice job mounting it!

              And here I have a bench vice that came with the bench and I can't use it because Home the only place I have room for it is my den and it's too close to the other furniture, and #2.... and most importantly, the old lady would throw a fit if I started banging away on a chunk of wood with chips flying everywhere! You're a lucky man!

                  I have a 10 x 12 aluminum shed in the back yard where I keep my scroll and miter saw. The only problem is that the temperature from April to October can get as high as 130 or more. It's a lot like walking into a nuclear reactor space. You've got about 3 minutes time before it becomes too hot to remain any longer.

                      I'll give you $5 for it. Just kidding. I have a vise like that and a Zyliss vice, as well (and a bunch of bench jacks) for my carving bench. My wife complains about sawdust in the house. If I had gotten a shop like I was promised as a condition for the move to this area, I wouldn't be bringing sawdust into the house. Whatever. I wipe my shoes on a mat that takes the sawdust off, before I go back into the house. No-no, child, it wasn't me!

                          Then as I am putting in push pegs to hold my projects,And tried it out, I found the top of my table wasn't thick enough. So I mounted 2x4s under to drill into. I have not tried that out yet ,, .Currently other things to do while this right hand gets better.a slow process.

                            I've had one sitting under the bench for 30 years Think maybe it's time I actually fitted it to the bench. But hey you just can't rush these things. hehehe.
