  1. I have 3 now the one from Good-Will had a disconect between jaws about 1 1/2" at one end of the jaw,twist, frist soaked it then force bound the jaws for about 3 weeks this did improve a little so next I used the steam from the Tea kettle and steamed the wood for approx.1/2 hr the bound the jaws again and let it set for 2 weeks and all is well now.However I do bind the jaws on all 3 now when not in use. I will keep the last one from AL as it also has a foot closing strap on the other side of the lever,my son "thinks he wants one,and a trade is working for the third.
  2. Sorry that I'm so late to the party I bought the same one in 2011 for $50.00 in AL and just seen one in NWFL for $219.00 this Jan. Mine is made of Chesnut.
