Finally bought a bench vise

Postby Von » Thu Sep 19, 2019 9:49 pm

After breaking a jaw off my Harbor Freight vise trying to bend the shifter on T18 I've been looking around for a decent vise I can afford.
I wanted one that opened at least 6 inches and got decent reviews. No luck.
Got bored the other day when I ran out of parts for the truck again and started cruising eBay.
After a while I just said frick it and broke out the PayPal credit...

Well done! I have a bit of a vise fetish and you certainly got your moneys worth.
