  4. I just used what i had , it's 9 gauge hard wire, the wood is MDF base that i had painted for another project,side and tops is just rough cut 1x8 that i rip down and sanded took about 1 1/2 hrs to make.
  5. I just ground down the threads a little on each side ,works now hold the hook straight . i would of brought it back but was almost 11/2 hour ride
  6. Here's a side view ,and a look on the inside as you can see the square is crocked that's why it won't go vertical thinking about grinding one side on the bottom of the shaft that goes though the square .do you think that would work
  7. i picked up this vise at a fly shop to get my feet wet in fly tying ,did not went to spend to much at first. but now after using it it i think its not for me it wont hold a hook vertical, but it does hold the hook . Is this common on lower price vises
  8. I just hung a shop lite over my desk and works pretty good , by the way just took one of our dining room chair cushions its about 4'' thick (for now)
