This one looks pretty good b/c it locks the board down: Amazon.com: Tools4Boards BoardLoc Snowboard Vise: Sports & Outdoors

I like how this one has 3 angle options for edging: Jons Ski Tuning - Starfix Snowboard Vice Set

Man, how has Tognar not caught on at this site? Check them out. They have the finest selection of tuning and repair tools on the web. I use them all the time.
