Whats the pricing on the Anvil vise? I am currently considering Nor-vise vs. Renzetti traveler 2200
Can't sit at the vise for more the 30-40 minutes anymore!
Back problems have been with me for 30+ years now. Mostly lower and middle back. That was until I had a nasty fall on the ice on New Years Eve 2012. I landed very hard on my upper back. Now there isn'
