Default Warming a low profile vise

I'm dealing with a finger contracture of the left hand and subsequent unsuccessful surgery that is hindering my ability to hold and turn the early model low profile vise. Cool to cold temperatures cause a hand cramp. Gloves are not going to work. An ideal solution would be a base that would warm the vise to a temp around 100 degrees F. I tried a wrap around knee warmer, which was not capable of warming a piece of steel the mass of the vise. Amy ideas would be welcome.

Default Re: Warming a low profile vise

Ron,
I have had similar surgery on both hands, the right hand twice, I literally feel your pain. I use a heat gun to warn my ball vise and turntable. Usually only takes a few minutes and Iím good for a few hours.

I hope this helps.
