String spreader vise mod by @chesapeakerepair
Easy way to get those pesky strings out of the way while you are working on the final touches of a nut. Drill a hole in either side of your vise jaws and stick some chop sticks in there. Make sure the holes are wide enough so the sticks can be removed while you move the string back and forth. For more outstanding luthing check out @chesapeakerepair <—here .
