    Here's a picture of an Indispensable vise in my shop. Regardless of how I need to manipulate a part, this vise is up to the challenge. It's made by Garfield Engineering and was later sold to Wilton Vise Corporation.

    I also have the Versa Cradle and love it. Either the Versa Cradle or the Pow-R-Arm, or for that matter, any of my reloading presses, can be swapped out using a quick change adapter I fabricated for my loading bench.

    Thanks for the reply. My wife tells me that I'm always trying to re-invent the wheel, well maybe sometimes "round" isn't the way to go......

    There is nothing like a good tool in the hands of someone that knows how to use it.
