Thank you for the info, but I fear it may no longer be relevant. According to Jay Smit, designer/builder of the JVice, most of the existing JVice's reside in the USA. Jay sends his vise all over the world directly, the shipping cost to the USA currently about $100. I posted the WTB hoping to find one here and hopefully avoid that steep shipping charge, but if I have no luck within reasonable time will order a vice from the maker and swallow the shipping fee.you may consider checking a south african board for one. Are they being imported to the USA? When I lived in SA, they were everywhere there.
Interesting...I had read the vice stem of the JVice is 10mm, slightly larger than the industry standard 3/8". Whose base are you using with your JVice?I got one from him for Christmas and my wife only paid $30 for shipping to Canada. That was with the standard vise and no base. The base I had for my previous vise fits it fine.
It's an awesome vise by the way.
