Goofy Vise

Given the 1911 project, I recently purchased a Harbor Freight vise that can be easily attached and removed from the appropriate plane. It cost 10 bucks ($16 with shipping, but I didn't have to get off my ass.) It's perfect for gun work. The jaws are about perfect.

Unfortunately, most jaw pads are about 5" long. As seen in the picture, it looks kind of stupid and, although it works, is a little more work.

The Old Man checked it out and is buying the identical vise. Good for me, because he plans on making custom oak jaws, fitted to the actual vise.

Hopefully, it doesn't look as retarded by February.
