    Thereís a lot of mass in the small fly jaws compared to the standard jaws. Any thoughts there? Itís what put me off a vice I was quite keen on initially....?

    The additional off centre weight of the fine jaws is offset slightly by the handle, and it still spins freely, just not for quite as long a time as with the inline jaws.

    There's a waste drawer under the base that snaps in with a couple of magnets
    Nice addition Mike, I like it...

    Itís not that good Rich.
    I used bamboo in the kitchen trade back in the day Mike, it is very nice to work with, it loves a router, hard wearing stuff as well, I like the waste drawer.

    Sit still and watch the river, it's all a part of fishing.

    Today's project, I had a spare slab of wood, so carved the corner out, added some pockets, and fitted a rotary tool caddy. Trickiest bit was getting the radius right in the main base. I routered this out, then finished the recess for the caddy on the mill.
