Default Re: ugh im having trouble getting a vise

You could get a made in USA Peak vise for $145. That's bullet-proof! It's
pedestal base weigs 5lbs, and mine doesn't move at all while tying.

I can see buying more materials, however. What are you currently tying on?
My Griffin 2A was a fine vise, and held hooks better than anything I've
tried since. The knobs work very well, and only take 30 minutes to become
expert at tuning them. I can see a scenario in which you're sitting at the
tying table, and wondering "What if I had a Mongoose?" . Get what makes
you happy.
