I cant answer that people tell me I have to many and will never use them all but I beg to differ as I have and am using several and have two on my work bench as well so if there is an extra one laying around the shop it will prolly get used as well but then the number of vise's used will all depend on the type of work and purpose I would imagine

It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues.

I would like to think that I work hard on my vice's but I as well work hard with my vise's to maintain as many of the nine virtue's I believe in...

It is hard admit that it is hard work some times when your stuck between your vice's an your vise's but neither one shall come before my virtue's

You can only loose face when you allow others with no virtue's to blindside you then your just stuck holding the vise
