    I did the same thing. Bought the vice from HF just to do my prop. Tightened the prop tool and boom the vise broke, prop and all hit the ground.

    busted a buddy's vise trying to change prop. Now I use Duke's technique which does not required vise and work really well.

    I will try and find the thread.
