I've been very diligently saving up for my vice hardware and I was rewarded recently for my patience. When I was getting some lumber for the cradle I spotted a used Columbia bench vice on the floor in this fellas shop. He's going to sell it to me for about 50 buck less that the one I was planing on getting from Lee Valley. It's not quick release but I'll survive. I can order the tail vice hardware anytime now and get moving on things. I also have to get the wood for the base one of these days too.
