Re: Vise Squad

I use my vise's swivel feature a lot. Very handy.

The Fireball Tool vise has an unusual base with what appears to be a very strong design.

Re: Electrical wiring in the home shop.

A lady just drove up to my house and installed a whole-house surge protector in 2 minutes. What?

Re: Vise Squad

I contacted Yost about their 8" ADI vise. A co-owner told me the actual jaw width is 8", not the 7" Amazon listed. Also, the 8" version is intended to be used at up to 11,000 lbs. of clamping force, and they test it to destruction at 20,000. Apparently, people fiddle with the specs on vendor sites, ...
