  1. After getting home and taking another look at my setup it is obvious that the vise is much too high. Like maybe as much as 7 or 8 inches.
  2. Thanks Crackaig, this is the kind of information I was looking for. When I get home I'm going to measure as you suggest however I can tell you right away that my vise sits much higher than you describe. I will check into this vise extension you mention. Thanks all.
  3. So then, can you tell me at what height the base of your vise sits relative to your body? For example, does the vise base sit even with your belly, your waist or your sternum? The counter top and the bar stool are correctly matched for one another and I can sit on my laptop at that same counter all day if I choose and not have any issues whatsoever.
  4. Hello all, I've been tying for about 20 years off and on. I don't tie that often much anymore mainly because I can't sit at the vise for more than 30 or 40 minutes before my upper back starts to cramp up so bad I can't stand it. I don't know if it's the height of the table, I tie on a bar/counter but the stool height is fine for anything else I do there, just not tying. I've tried putting a pillow on the stool but that didn't help. Yesterday I took 3 Advil and had a couple of Vodka/Gingers and still no relief. Anybody else had this problem and found a remedy?
  5. Just registered and want to say hello to all.
