Need Advise of Travel Vise Pedestal Base
What I want is a pedestal base to mount my old Thompson "A" in when I am on the road with a travel kit.
I have a pedestal vase for my old "A" now, but it is a Thompson, and quite heavy. I like the stand portion a lot.
What I plan to do is to make a travel vise/tying set up, so it is packed and ready all of the time. I will likely make a wooden base for it that will be the right size to put my catch tray on, and that will be lighter to carry around than the heavy steel one for my "A". What would be ideal is to find one with a removable upright that holds the shaft of the vise, and I would remove that upright and fix a wooden base that I could attach the upright to.
I see bases on Ebay that might be OK, but have no idea which are good and which are jund.
Price is definately an object, and I don't want to spend a lot.
Any advise would be appreciated.
Thanks and regards,
