    MTM is "ok", tipton is better, for lite use. I like the PARROT style with the tilting jaws much better. And a "honker" (BIG !) vise for heavy stuff.

    if it is general light duty, you can get a good rest that has a nice back saddle type stock holder and some have a way to grip front and get double duty

    Lyman has a rotating vise that looks like the cats meow for light/medium duty jobs. About $80
