Funny i broke my new vice doin the same a month ago. Driveshaft is workin good though lol. Did my ball joints 2 weeks ago when i did my 8 lug swap up front. No vice around large enough or a press but a piece of pipe and a BFH worked well.
I bought a vice toda in Kamloops,paid 3x the money.The guy dared me to try and break it.The first one I got from Japan Tire,the second from Lrdco.Both broke,both crap.I dunno if the new one will be big enough for the ball joint's,may need the BFH!
Can never seem to stay in the bush long enough!

Some adVICE, when you break your vice, somethimes that can be a good thing, because a vice can become a crutch, and a crutch becomes a habit, and a habit is an addiction. So a broken vice, can be a good thing
