    I've been in search for a quality gun vice for cleaning, working on stocks or mounting scopes. Just needed something that would hold a rifle like it grew on it yet was flexible, not asking much :D Well after trying a bunch of things I found THEE tool, the VersaCradle!! You all probably know about them and I'm just the last guy to get one but I though I'd show it of anyway!! It's seriously built but moves anywhere you need it and locks down solid, in the pics I have a 14lb rifle in it and it's solid, I could lift the table by the rifle!
    Spacers on the cradle arms can be swapped around to fit the width you need so you can hold any shape rifle solidly. The rifle sits of set so you can remove the bottom metal without moving the rifle, just lay it over and lock it down and work! Need to work on the other side just swing it around the other direction, you don't need to remove it and swap ends you just put it where you need it!!

    Wish my lathes looked that clean. Problem is, I use them all the time so my chip pans have chips in the pans....... Oh well.

    I see you have floor/moisture issues. Glad I layed in PEX and heat the floor. Moisture and tools don't mix.

    I want the order info as well. Don't look that hard to machine up, but simpler and less costly (time wise), to purchase.

    Cough up the website Plllllllllease.....:)

    Here's the link, http://www.berrysmfg.com/product-i14795-c75-g8-b0-p1-VersaCradle_Bench_Mount.aspx

    Free shipping by the way!

    Ya, the work area has been a project, it's slowly coming together but if you notice it's not a panoramic picture :D It's a slow process, I'm really trying to keep the quality of the tools I'm getting as high as possible.

    The floor moisture issue is I just pulled in another table that was covered in a foot of snow and it's 8 below so the garage is not very warm. It's working to being totally insulated and temp regulated but everything comes in steps!
