    Well now that that's settled you should be set for the foreseeable future. It looks like there might be a few different places to rest the heal of your material holding hand which is always a good thing.

    Take a look at these, saw on another forum that someone had used this for their Jvice.

    Doesn't have the function of the standard bases, but they sure look nice.

    A cheap Renzetti traveler will have to work for me. It has dried head cement globs and deer hair stubs kinda messy-like on the base.

    The last thing I need is a rock slab for my vise base!!! My back is in bad enough shape for fishing.... I don't need to aggravate it further by moving my tying vise around.
