    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.

    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.
