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:

thanks for all the links, ill have to make an order later on. not sure how much use it will get after this project but im sure it will come in handy.

p.s. i could have sworn id put my location in my profile but perhaps not, i blame old age  :old:
