It goes to show a lot about the tenacity and character of Rod’s for sure. Even though he’s no longer with us, lot’s of folks here think and talk about him often.

I didn’t realize but I’ve been a member on here since 2005, and this is really the only forum I’ve used now for years.

Looks like Pop shared it over there back in February. He's a long-time member here too.

Cutter had a pretty good run and was incredibly helpful to all. This vise took on a life of it's own. Heck, most all of his projects did. He has a couple other very detailed threads on here for neat stuff. Search out the Forksnatch if you ever need to get the most from your garden tractor .

Our forum doesn't get a whole lot of new members. The whole genre seems to have fallen out of fashion years ago but we like to keep this place going. If you dig around you'll notice that we keep all our images and files stored locally so that these old threads never become useless. Cutter's vise predates our forum, yet the information is still there for everyone to see--along with ALL the other members' projects.

Feel free to stick around and join in if the mood hits ya. We're always happy to have the company and we'll talk about darn near anything.

I threw this photo up in another thread last month. I never thought about adding it/them over here.

It has a pretty easy life on that little table.

Maybe an easy life, but good to see it still being useful. Cutter would be happy

It'll be just fine, even if you just walked by and pet it every once in a while and smile.

I originally ended up on SFT because of a thread about tearing down a track loader. I didn't set down and read the "Saga of Cutter's Vise" till much later there was a lot going on Randy was converting the warehouse in Georgia and whatnot. Once I did I just shook my head in wonder Rod/AKA Cutter was quite possibly one of the most stubborn men to ever walk this planet I'd have tossed that damn vise in the scrap pile after about 2 weeks. But, Rod never gave up and got to proclaim "Fuck You I Win"

I think it deserves a kiss, maybe even with a little tongue!
