Hehehe - no worries on this end Charlie

I learned about safety at a very young age. Started working on a farm at thirteen and my first full time job, fresh out of college was contract gold mining. I saw first hand my share of the results of unsafe practices including digging my stope boss out of a 45' deep mill hole.

Credit where due - Paul Rons suggestion of a cross feed vise is an excellent one and I second it most heartily.
