    I will say that I used a Starrett machinists bench vise for while and it was a piece of junk. The construction was of high quality but the jaws didn't tighten down evenly no matter how tight you cranked it down. One side was tighter than the other and your work piece would slip/pivot around every time. Maybe it was a fluke, as I know the old Athol vises were well made. I'm glad I was just borrowing it from my neighbor, and I was glad to return it when I got the big Reed.

    It holds a Saw bar alright for sharpening purposes.

    I guess that’s why it’s on that “stump” & not in the shop.

    Big wilton. 8" jaws, about 31" overall length. Not mine, it's a friend's. MSC sells it for about $6k. He got it for $300. MVIMG_20180810_163804.jpg

    I like your setup! Makes it a lot easier to sharpen a chain when you have the bar clamped in a vise.
