I started with the plywood variety, then at some point a plastic Stanley showed up..briefly..then this guy..
He's got a 2×2 screwed to the base, initialy that was to use in the Workmate, but now it just drops in my bench vice as required..I put it in service rescently for the crown mouldings on a case my son's "making" he was out of town at the time and wondered how I'd cut the miters as he has an ex boss that dropped 6 g on kitchen cabnets you can see daylight through the miters..go figure..
And then came..
not sure of the vintage, but it's a Craftsman with a 28" bladed German made Craftsman saw.
The saw has a plywood handle, slightly relieved to fit my tender hand.
The base alows me to put it where ever needed.
