Vise at work
The vise is a very nice Wilton unit I got off Amazon or something. When we were shopping for another vise for our video production set, we discovered this one was made in China! Shit! For the videos, we bought a US-made Wilton, which costs about $300 more than the Chinese ones (something like that).
I replaced the steel vise jaws with smooth ones made from phenolic plastic, and surfaced those with leather.
