    The search for a bench drill vise yielded a used / old unbranded piece to kind of match the drill. Oh yeah prices are a bit crazy as I was made aware before my hunting began. What I liked about this piece if the fact that has
    a rod / guide in the middle that I believe will give more stability an good grip on the items placed in it.
    Here it is ... :-)

    A spot in the garage is always my problem. It is very small and my wife likes to put her Mini in there during the winter. Got to find a spot for a press.

    Check out craigslist in the "free" listings for an old kitchen drawer bank with a piece of counter top. Then you'll have a place to store drill bits and such.

    Nelson is beautiful, I have been meaning to get back up there for years now. My brother and I had a trip planned for that way earlier in the year....

    Baggy jeans and chain wallets are making a comeback. A look created by my generation in the mid 90s. Fuck I’m getting old.

    Baggy pants and chain wallets were a fad long before that. Check out the 1930's Zoot Suits. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoot_suit The difference there is they actually had a waist and you didn't have to look at their underwear!

    Oh I’m well aware, lol. Zoot suits were all the rage at the same time I was dragging the cuffs of my Jnco jeans all over the place. I wore a Zoot Suit to my Jr Prom. Pin stripes, chain wallet down past my knee. I’m far too familiar with the fashion cycle. Baggy jeans specifically, at least of the flavor that’s starting to have a comeback, were mostly a product of the mid-90s though. So this resurgence hits a lot harder for me than most other things lol.

    I'm a leader of fashion not a follower.

    I staunchly avoid fashion.
    Blue jeans, t shirts and a brush cut, the styles that never go out of style.
    Fashion is a f—king treadmill that I fell off in grade 9 and never got back on.

    I would argue that jeans are a fashion. I don't own any myself but apparently everybody else does.

    I have genes, but they are obviously not the best!
