    Wow! I just noticed that, on an annual basis, AG made about 6.75 posts per year and FB even less @ 3.1. Maybe they found something interesting in this topic?

    Hans,

    I saw this vise being used many years ago. Looked great then and looks great today. I must disagree with you however. If it is "an under-rated vise in today's world", it is because it hasn't...
