Awesome Bench Vise

Proxxon Bench Vise

I just got this vise yesterday in the mail and can't say enough good things about it. This is a quality German made, vise. It is the best vise ever! Well, I guess I have to admit that this is my first small bench vise. Up to now, I've been using the huge beat up one that my husband has on his workbench (which works great for holding the ring mandrel and hammering stuff). However, this one is so perfect for small things like setting stones in bezels. I love the fact that it can be clamped to your bench or screwed in for more permanent placement. It also swivels, so if you are setting a stone in a bezel, you can swivel the vise and don't need to keep taking your ring out to move it around. The removable rubber jaws are wonderful also. You don't want to do a bunch of work and have your silver marred by your vise. I found this vise at Rio Grande for only $37.99 (Item number 205083).

You do me proud, woman! Nice vise. I was just looking at classes at Lee Valley and I so want all the big toys. $38 is a good score!

You should check out the PanaVise vises too! They are wonderful for this kind of work. A bunch of different kinds for all kinds of projects. :) I think the website is something like www.panavise.com. I would recommend it, I use the Standard 300 all the time. :)
