    Gorgeous! Funny, I finally ordered mine about 10 minutes before your post. Decided to go with Wasatch because they are great to work with, and because they helped our local club raise funds at our auction through their generous donations.

    Stunning, absolutely gorgeous. Now I have severe vise envy.

    Root,

    That's a beautiful vise. My wife has the red one and the all brass one. Yes, she has two....and the large set of tools. She is one lucky woman.

    That vise looks to pretty to clutter up with feather and deerhair snips. Better to put it in a glass display case.

    You can still get your old vise back and use that.

    Ha! I'll get it cluttered up in no time!:D
    I pulled my old (like new) vise off the classifieds and it is going to PHWFF.

    ‘Root purchased himself a J-Vise
    That tool looked so handy and nice
    But like fly rods and guns
    Vises aren’t owned in ones
    So I bought one and didn’t think twice.

    Sorry, I'm still in limerick mode, lol.

    You guys need to stop posting your new vises! Now I'm looking around trying to figure out what I can sell to buy a J-Vise! :D

    Actually, I'm looking around trying to figure out what I can sell to purchase a tuned exhaust system for one of my motorcycles. I have two Mustang open-face Buck's Bags float tubes that where only used once but I don't know how much they are worth. The price of float tubes and pontoon boats is so inexpensive these days, I don't think I'd get much for the tubes.
