No white suits or Don Johnson here, :dontknow:

My old vice was mangled from years of smashing u joints and other abuse, and it was mounted to the work bench. so every time you you beat stuff in it all the shit on the bench would fall over and it pissed me off..

SO i bought a new vice, Grabbed a 24.5 wheel from work and went at it. Headed to NightCrawlers shop to night for a few pops and we made this unit in a hour or so... Turned out pretty nice.. i really like the Hammer Holders.

Still gotta paint it, then a buddie it gonna do some Old Skool pin stripe'n on it for me..... this Vice setup should last me the rest of my life [36]

looks good, but how much weight can you put on that vice till it falls over.

Looks like 3 or 4 $5.00 bags of concrete mix poured in the rim would help with the weight issue....

Looks great man, Just as added ballast consider putting a plate on the bottom and filling the wheel with strong concrete...:)
