Might be, when you have one soaking in oil and two in a bucket waiting to be painted when the weather permits...

I too am a vise accumulator , I have a soft spot for well made ones , even some ugly but all well made. The junk China stuff if I get any gets give away. A six inch drill press vise came on my enco mill half busted its going too . If anyone wants it pay shipping you got it.

There is always one... or two. LOL.

"Harleys are the only real motorcycle."
"Ranger Bass Boats or Nothing."
"If you can't afford the price tag go home little boy."

In December 1993 when I started my contracting company I didn't even own a pickup truck. I hired a buddy and paid him handsomely because he owned one. I did sales calls on my motorcycle because it looked nicer than my car. I bought my first decent name brand drill motor with the deposit from a network cabling job... so I could do the cabling job. If I was a snob I'd never have the house, boats, bikes, trucks, cars, machines, tools, test equipment, shop, property, etc I have today. I am a hard driven harder worker. That's what really matters, but then according to some I'm not a real machinist either. LOL. Just a button pushing shade tree self taught hack wannabee. LOL. In some of my cute little videos I actually say that by the way. Makes a great way to introduce a video so folks don't expect more than it is.

I just walked around I have 13 vises. 4 are woodworking vises. So 9 for metal. Aside from my bridgeport vise, none of the rest are precision vises. 2 palmgrens , 1 Parker (medium large), 1 Wilton (medium), 1 old craftsman (medium large) and a couple of assorted drill press vises (craftsman American made nice, chineese), small Wilton
