Well, the vise showed up and I decided to put it on Ebay. Don't get me wrong, it is a beautiful piece of equipment. I got a twinge of practicality and decided to see if I could turn a profit.
It is currently at $305.
If it goes high enough I will use the proceeds to buy a more economical vise for myself.
Maybe I'll bring it along to the casting clave?
