    My barrel vise. It is a 4 bolt and has a couple die springs to spread them when loosening the bolts.

    I had trouble holding some barrels on the little bench type vises.

    That's a heavy duty rig! I will switch to bushing type if my v-block setup ever quits working. I won't be doing a whole lot of swapping. I mainly made to do savage barrels and I maybe doing a rem-age in the future.

    Mix laquer thinner and powdered rosin, then paint the inside of your vise and let it dry. Helps it get ahold!

    I've been using powdered rosin (from the bowling pro shop) and a bit of spit and have yet had a barrel slip. I don't use it often anymore, but with it bolted to the milling machine table, even the toughest barrels are no challenge.

    If you have no rosin, powdered sugar works great.
