    I don't do much tying on the hood of my truck so I think I'll pass. :D

    Hey, you never know.... why else did they come up with a vise that includes magnets on the bottom? (actually, the unit includes a metal plate to provide a larger base so the magnets do have a legit use... but it's still fun making jokes about them)

    Those J vises are industrial sculpture. If you have the disposable funds go for it. The only bad part is that you'll have to make sure the rest of your tying space is up to par.

    Jack, forgive my for poaching your pic, but It'll make the j vise a little harder for Bitteroot to resist.

    Well, my favorite tying space is on my lap...much like Jay Smit, the maker (according to his website). It hardly compares to the one above, but it doesn't kill my back.

    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
