It is very substantial and weighs about 30 lbs. I make banjos and was hoping to use it for engraving mother of pearl on banjo inlays. But the jaws do not support a whole banjo neck very well. Not appropriate for what I had in mind, but otherwise a great piece of equipment! The item "GRS Magnablock Engraver's Ball Vise Heavy Duty" is in sale since Thursday, August 19, 2021.
