Hi Allen, thanks for the offer, but that is not what I'm looking for. Though I think it is better than a Gramercy, because it is cast iron Cheers Pedder

It would be a shame to rip it apart, but if you ever think about selling the saw vice only and send it to Germany, please contact me. Cheers Pedder

Hi Guys, I did have the Gramercy. But I didn't like it after about 50 saws. The very ends didn't clamp the saw as firm as I would have liked it. So I use only wooden vises. Same problem ther...
