Lucky Vise

After they moved their deceased father's belonging out of his tiny home and sheds located out back, they said "Take a look in the sheds and take anything you want!"


Had they seen me at the dumpster diving?

Who cares?

I went to look.


They had left behind a heavy duty vise. It took some work to get it uninstalled moved and reinstalled inside my shed, but oh so worth the effort. I use it often! It is thru-bolted on my work bench desk.

It has blue tape on it because I was ding a delicate project and didn't want the rust to have a chance to touch the project.

It's a big sturdy vise that sells fr around $100 new. I am one lucky lady!

Even opened a cantankerous ketchup bottle.

I also grabbed a nearly new leaf rake from the shopping shed. But no way to hang it up. So I stuck it in the vise, drilled a hole in the top handle then locked a zip tie on it about an inch or two wide. This means I can now use a hook to hang up the rake.

I rake my leaves once a year whether they need it or not.

The oaks around me rain down leaves and twigs 24/7.

Life is goof.

Vise sounds just like vice.

And a billion other items too

  1. WE had one just like that, that we had inherited from Craig's stop father. We moved it from house to house over the years, but left it behind when we moved into the RV. It sure came in handy for many projects though.
