What does "Sador's Vice" mean?

The name of my shop is a combination of two words.

Sador is a character from Tolkien's "The Children of Húrin" set in the First Age of Middle Earth. Sador was a wise old carpenter and servant of the Húrin, and the childhood friend of Húrin's son Túrin. Not one of the heroic characters, but one that I aspire to be like most.

The "Vice" part of the name comes from how my workshop started out. My Grandfather had a workshop on his farm in Serbia, and in there I always remembered an old machinist's vice mounted on the workbench. After my Grandfather passed away and I eventually got into woodworking, I managed to get this heavy old vice over to the UK to be the basis for my new little workshop. It's not a woodworker's vice, but I still use it every day as my main way of holding work. Other vices have since been used and failed where this one keeps going strong.
