With some help from my forklift I got the vice screw removed. Im missing whatever holds the moveable jaw to the screw.

I think I speak for your "aunts" and "uncles" here when I say we are PROUD of the progress you have made with your building/equip/etc.

Sometimes it is good to take a break from the big projects and knock out some smaller projects. Step back, regroup and revise your plan. Learn to channel the dark into a positive light. Take a walk and drink a water or other beverage. Deep breathe in the nose, out the mouth. I hope our ballbusting is not part of your problem... Adversity will build your character.

Take a ride around your town and meet your neighbors. Maybe they are looking for work to do. It is amazing how a little extra money in the pocket will bring a smile to your face!

ORF,

You know you have a good vice when you need to use a forklift to move it. The mount looks solid and well made. I don’t think you will be needing to make another one any time soon.

Is your dozer still stuck in the woods or did you manage to get it moving again?

Is the ground there dry at the moment? If so whilst you head is not in the right place for construction work how about a bit of therapeutic heavy equipment play?

Rob
