It happened again. I was adjusting my metal bench vise to put the squeeze on a workpiece when the handle bar suddenly slid full force through its hole, slamming my fingertip between the ball-end of the bar and the head of the vise screw. (A bunch of you out there know exactly what I’m talking about.) I finally decided I had had quite enough of that smooth move and rifled through my collection of rubber washers and O-rings looking for a fix. I found a couple of thick rubber washers that fit nicely onto the ends of the handle just below each ball. No more blood blisters.
