    I've decided what I really need is a permanent, fully equipped tying station in every room in my house. it drives my wife batty how I will drag all my tying stuff around to whichever room we happen to be hanging in, and I end up leaving a trail of materials and tools through the house. My desk is in my bedroom but I find it much more enjoyable to bring my stuff out and tie around my family instead of alone in the bedroom

    So you ordered from Wasatch I presume? Curious to see what you think of their base.

    Yes, ordered from Wasatch. I looked at the vises at the show and liked the base. The wooden bases from Jvice in S. Africa are nice as well and have a lot of cool features.

    "Should be here Friday" What does shippping run ordering through Wasatch? How do the bases differ?

    Well, let me put it this way about shipping...it's negotiable.
    The bases from Jvice are more of a laptop tying table. The Wasatch bases are a block of maple.

    The Wasatch vise comes standard with the Stainless steel Pro jaws, which would be an upgrade if ordered from S. Africa.
