Papa’s got a brand new vice — and this time, it’s legal! Swivel-head, 5″ jaws, 3″ pipe grip, anvil surface. Bolted to the workbench today, a Gibraltar for the garage. Early birthday present from beautiful wife. Enjoyed being at Home Despot, seeing a mountain of these stacked on the shelves so high you have to get an employee with ladder privileges to get one down for you, imagining The Big One striking at just that moment, dying poetically beneath an avalanche of vices.
Now I just need something to crush. One tool at a time, I’m becoming my father.
