On a whim

Years ago, a friend was liquidating his FIL's stuff after he died and gave me his old bench vice. After 15 years, I found it in my garage and decided to clean it up.



I guess my vice is next.


I'm not a pro. And the white lettering isn't as nice as what was in my mind. But here it is.

I've got a little ad-vice for you, maybe blue the handle or powder coat or paint to keep it lasting longer. Sorry I really just wanted to add a pun it looks fine as is and I couldn't come up with anything good.

It looks really good I wish I had a nice green vice.

I thought it was quite meta seeing the vise handle in the jaws of a vise...

And wait! There's more! Act now and the anvil is a free bonus!

You seem like a nice guy, but you have a few vices.
