    Silver,

    Thanks for the heads-up. I read on my Kindle constantly and I like free books. It will give me some good winter reading material as I await for spring.

    Byron,

    Nice looking vise. Very clean and simple design. I'm just wondering, is that sheet of paper next to the vise a count of the number of vises you have???
