  2. I like it because i can mount it to the Base or the Stem of the vice . The magnetic base can be removed by a trun of the switch. Not only can i use it as a profile plate but i can all put a mirror on it .! And why a mirror you ask ...for salmon flies or anyother fly that you want to have good Symmetry It realy does help

And foam for a 1 at the any dollar store http://www.princessauto.com/pal/product/8372120/Magnetic-%26-Deflection-Acc/Universal-Magnetic-Base and you can change the color plates to what ever you want .And on any angle:) I thought i would share my little creation
