I know, he uses the bench grinder for a hollow grind then scary sharp freehand...

I still think the showa vise is a good buy. My main vise in the shop. However, it has an achilles's heel- mine stopped unloosening, and i had to whack it to unclamp stuff lately. The bar underneath became mangled from the torsion of the spring so i replaced it.

The bandsaw made quick work in cutting angle bar to make the part (mine has a gearbox that slows it down to metal cutting speeds.) a jigsaw will do the job too, but it would have taken me ages with a hacksaw.

Am happy this evening that i managed to repair it.
