We're always happy to help
Make that two of us. If I do buy another vise it will be a J.
I will return the favor and tempt you all with photos when it arrives!
So you ordered from Wasatch I presume? Curious to see what you think of their base.
Yes, ordered from Wasatch. I looked at the vises at the show and liked the base. The wooden bases from Jvice in S. Africa are nice as well and have a lot of cool features.
"Should be here Friday" What does shippping run ordering through Wasatch? How do the bases differ?
Well, let me put it this way about shipping...it's negotiable.
The bases from Jvice are more of a laptop tying table. The Wasatch bases are a block of maple.
What jaws did you order?
The Wasatch vise comes standard with the Stainless steel Pro jaws, which would be an upgrade if ordered from S. Africa.
Pretty danged fancy.... but for the life of me, I couldn't determine what the thing costs on their site.
That's why I actually have a house dedicated to my flytying. Still in development process, but it's coming along nicely.
Click on Ordering, then click on the appropriate download. You will get an excell spreadsheet with all the items/options/prices.
If it wasn't for the 100.00 shipping, that is a heck of a good price for a vise like that one! I thought they'd be much more than they are.
I wonder if it is the $$ exchange rate that makes the price so reasonable?
I'm thinking about glueing some magnets on the bottom of the maple base...then I'll have a Wasatch Magna J vise!
GAT, I sure hope your talking about the price and shipping from South Africa. From what I could gather from the spread sheet you buy the vise, the base, bobbin rest and jaws, all separately, then add in the shipping. From Wasatch it's a $500 bill plus $36 for express shipping.
Root, let me know how you like the vise.
