GRS now has a version that is round with a leather top that was suggested by Sam Alfano. Like Ray's, which I have enjoyed, the GRS version sits flush with the inside edge of one jaw. As a result, it works when drawing on something held between the jaws, such as shown above, but it covers all the holes on the top side of its jaw, so you can't use pins in that side to hold something.

Would you mind showing a photo of it with the gold holddowns you referenced?

You just made my day! THAT is a great modification to the plate. Ray Viramontez would love it.

That's it! I'm looking into making one myself, but if someone here wants to earn a little cash and make a few, I'll take one. Thanks Sam.
