People, Vise is spelled with an S

Attention Chief Delphi. This is a public service announcement.

When referring to the piece of workshop equipment, vise is spelled with an S.

Vise:

Vice:

That is all.

Vise, also spelled Vice, device consisting of two parallel jaws for holding a workpiece; one of the jaws is fixed and the other movable by a screw, a lever, or a cam.

Hm, looks like it should be pronounced “vize”
And then there’s the word “solder”…

VISE IS PRONOUCED “VIZE”. ANY OTHER WAY IS WRONG.

No, you’re wrong. I have several vices in my workshop.

This is my biggest pet peeve on the machining forums!

British vs American issue?

One of my many vices :slight_smile:

And then there’s the word “solder”…

sure it’s not sawdur?

V I-with-a-line-over-it S
sodder

Whassasamaddawichu? Cancha talk Brooklyn? :stuck_out_tongue:

Oh come on, Britain and America settled their differences already. Right? I hope so.

Of all the misspellings, mispronunciations, and misconceptions in FRC, this is your hill to die on? That’s just sad. #NeverGraciouslyAccept](http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55992)

Only when I am up on the ruf or out on the stoop or with 2 yutes.

I guess you could say it is his vice.

Are you talking about the thing we use to hold mechanum wheels?

Did you just say yutes?!

I agree, vice vs vise is defiantly not the worst.

Best misspelling of this one that I’ve seen is an electrical tote labeled “sauteing iron”.

My wife and I were watching the tournament selection show and they announced the Utah Runnin’ Utes, and my wife asked me the golden question: “what is a ‘ute’”.

Everyone, please, have pity. This is the same language that created the word colonel. And bologna.
