Helluvawreck, the vises that Patron and Mike have recommended are more than adequate
to carve with and can take the punishment that mallet/chisels deliver.I purchased one
from woodcrafters and just last week,I had to take it too my welder and have him beef up the steel
walls.But then again I block out with heavy sculpting chisels.I’ve desinigrated carving arms,turned
solid oak,maple,mallets into mush.Most people block out with band saws and grinders which eliminates
the heavy work.Like Patron said if you need something heavier just increase the dia. of parts.
Have a great time creating carvings.Look forward to seeing your projects.
