Wax work, travel light

These vises are a great traveling wax bench if you need to do wax work at home or on the road, but they're a little clunky, and pretty thin at center. They work really well for me, and hold my skis solidly during those hard scrapings - the rubber grips are a lot tougher (and grippier) than they look (huge pro right there). My skis are only 66mm at center, though, and if you have some seriously wide powder skis, this may not be your dream vise. I have the model pictured in the guru snapshot, they rock, but I'm pretty sure he's right about the 85mm waist (not 110)
