Broke the vise on my Atlas pasta maker

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to replace it or a way to get around it? Will any vise do? Thanks.

    I haven't used theirs for years -- lost in some move. I "borrowed" one of my husband's C clamps from his woodworking shop and haven't looked back. It is both strong and inexpensive - a great combination.

      I was wondering if any vice would do. I'll see what Home Depot has. Thanks for the vise advice!

      I bought a motor for mine so I don't need to use a clamp. (plastic tightener broke right away anyway)

        I broke the plastic tightener on mine Atlas too. Now my husband just has the job of tightening and removing the clamp with a wrench.
