    You will like using that vice a lot more than working on the ground.

    Very nice build, and the color will keep you from bumping into it, will also keep the rust at bay no matter what color. I knew a guy a few years ago who worked construction and was given a 55 gallon drum of fire engine red paint. Everything around his place was red for several years until he ran out.

    Using threaded rod and nuts as a hinge is brilliant.
