Default Hello All!

Whelp, clearly I am new to this as well given I am introducing myself. My name is Jesse B, from Lubbock/Wichita Falls, Texas. Graduate student at Midwestern State University and currently working an internship at Museum of Texas Tech University, Lubbock Lake Landmark.
Anyways, I have been working with leather for about a year now as a hobby (that has gotten out of control) and have been interested in making my own conchos and maybe some buckles. I took interest pretty fast and hard once I started reading though the forum and seeing some of the beautiful work on here.

Like, alot of the others I am on a low budget as well, but will be ordering some hand tool in the next week or so, where I plan to dive in head first.

I seem to have a decent understanding of the hand tools I need, but can anyone suggest a good alternative to an expensive engraving vise?

Thanks ahead of time! Looking forward to this!
