    I built a stand for mine and it keeps growing extensions.
    Since this was taken it has sprouted two casters, lean it over and it can be rolled around carefully. And a small anvil and a smaller vice on the reverse oh and a set of matching Bahco files.

    Cheers. If you're absolutely sure, that would be lovely. :)


    A lot of swivel vise bases never look like they're liable to have much grip, from the ones I've seen. Good to hear it seems a decent vice. One of those should fill my external vice want nicely.

    I will update it tomorrow. What model? big fat one. You can just see the 25 on the side.

    Cheers. Thought that was a 25 on the side, but 3, 5, 6 and 8 tend to look awfully similar in photo's. :D


    A photo of another one, to keep Maker happy. :D This one is a little York, (Czechoslovakian), 60 vice. Unpainted, with protection provided by a coat of Linseed oil instead.

    Rub it in a bit more why don't you. :D Seriously, you did extremely well just finding one. The price was the icing on the cake. Treat that one well because you'd truly have to have the luck of the devil to drop across another one. :D


    p.s: If you ever decide to sell that one, could I get first dibs in? :)
