How I corrected this kit's lack of a center clamping vise.

I purchased this kit along with a Swix waxing table and was very disappointed that the 2 supplied ski "vises" were really only ski rests, and were kind of useless, especially when you have to scrape wax or file, and need your ski's to be held firmly. The catalog picture cleverly has one of the kit's components blocking you're view of the "vises" so you can't tell what your getting. Note, there's only 2 end supports shown in the picture and that's all you get! The kit is basically missing the all important center vise! You could buy a Swix center vice for $75 or more but that's crazy expensive for what should have been included in the first place.

The solution is to go to Harbor Freight and buy their clamp-on 6" Portable Carpenters Vise, for $19.99, or even less if you use one of their 20% off coupons. It's Harbor Freight's Item #95203, and without any modifications, it has the perfect dimensions to serve as the missing center vise and works great for all my family's ski's. The vise, grips onto your binding's base plates and everything is rock solid!
