On "where-do-I-get" questions, some indication of your location is always helpful.

Come on, Bertie. Put your location in your profile. We all know you here so don't be bashful! :stickpoke:

He is in the UK. But yes, a location in the profile is most helpful, even moreso in the signature line.

Maybe you aren't going to like this but I dumped one ( and a 2" ) some years ago as my max die OD is 1 1/2" now. Huge thing, made by Lehman Archer. Could hardly lift it..  :old:

Don't forget the two 4ft lengths of scaffold pole to go with it so you can actually turn the thing and make sure your vice is well bolted to the bench :LittleDevil:
