I have been wanting a vise for a long time now. Picture me trying to sharpen a lawnmower blade while stepping on it on top of a cardboard box. Yeah, I have been wanting a vise.
Every time I have checked for the vise I wanted at Home Depot, they were out. This has been going on for some time. The 3″, 4″ and even 6″ were always in stock, but those didn’t have the features I was looking for. For some reason, the 5″ vise had everything…twist, tilt and spin. Why they decided to stick these features on this vise in particular, I don’t know.
When I was in Home Depot yesterday, I decided to go look for the vise…again. To my “shock and awe,” when I peeked down the aisle, there was an extra box on the shelf (these things don’t move too often). I walked down to see if it was the one, and to my joy, it was.
If you take one look at this baby, I think you will know exactly why I am excited. I mean, c’mon, look at it. Sweet, clean and pristine.
I am going to mount this vise on my movable tool cart that I made. Then, sharpening the lawnmower blade will be no problem at all.
