Man turned away holding his privates, vise laughing.

"Gotcha!"    SCORE: Evil Vise (2) Nuts (0)



Vise handles provide three serious hazards.
  1. Swinging loose and striking one standing beside the vise.
  2. Pinched fingers or web between thumb and forefinger especially when handle drops.
  3. Locked handles (when not in use) being an obstruction hazzard.
Nothing can protect one from a swinging vise handle other than being careful where one stands and try not to let the handle swing loose. Pinching (and noise) can be reduced by placing two rubber electrical bushings (rubber grommets) on the shank of the handle under the knobs. Prior to doing this the hole in the vise screw should be dressed with a file if there is a sharp upset edge. The rubber bushing will also prevent further upsetting of the hole edge. - guru

A locked handle is a simple problem, don't tighten it when not in use. Bumping against a loose handle is less a problem than bumping against a tightened handle. - Tom H.


Two anvils talking while smith works - one anvil with blood shot eyes. . .
Man, I had too much slack-tub juice last night!

I've been ringing all morning.
