:clap: :clap:

I'm on my SECOND double-swivel vise. I bought one from one of those Harbor-Freight style surplus places, then upgraded to a larger one (probably about the size of Jack's) when Matt Meiser was decommissioning his shop. These are incredibly useful general-purpose vises. The rotation locks as soon as you clamp the vise onto something. Occasionally this is a problem when you're clamping something very gently, or using the vise to support something while driving out a spring-pin or something. However, the rotation also locks if you tighten the two allen screws in the ring on the back, and I keep an allen key that fits that ring attached to the base out of the way with a rare-earth magnet so it's always handy.

I highly recommend this type of vise, and don't want any other kind on my general-purpose workbench.
