Changed position at my company, leading to me spending a couple of months training my replacement as well as myself getting adjusted into my new spot. A good few months of time has passed.
About a week ago I got the urge to pick up my picks again and sift through some of the locks I bought prior to my hiatus, and it felt good.
One thing I never got around to buying was a "movable" vice. I used a bench-mounted type, but it was a lot of hassle.
Yesterday I found a decent one for a very reasonable price online, and decided to get it from a company I thought operated from Norway.
After ordering and paying, I later realized that they shipped from Eindhoven, Netherlands...
I ordered expedited shipping (for the hefty sum of ~$10.50) overnight, but figured no way...
About 24 hours later, today, I receive a call from the shipper that he expects to be at my work in about 10 minutes
All in all, ~$50 including overnight shipping for a very nice vice.
Now... Back to the locks
