Yeah and this picture is just priceless from the “spider vice”....awesome!

There has GOT to be a joke in there somewhere…just too early for me to figure out it.

I’ve actually been frustrated with Lee valley lately for various reasons. They just redeemed themselves with this…lol.

BigRedKnothead: Please share your frustration. I always found LV to have excellent service.

It’s a good thing most of us are not rich. Our shops would be full of a lot of useless junk.

Well for my side. It would be a crime to buy tools I cannot maintain. Lack of maintenance would produce rusty tools.

I could actually use the “Spider vice”! I’ve even considered making something like that!

John- nothing real major. I’ve had them not even ship my order for 5 business days lately. They’ve been out of pmv11 blades for my planes since Xmas. I don’t know. They make quality stuff, but I’m getting to where I’d rather save a little more and get an LN.
