In the attached file is an illustration of a vise base. What is an expedited technique to duplicate the padeyes seen in the isometric view to the other side? Thank you in advance

You need a work plane in the center of the model you're working on. 
You can either do that by editing your first exstrusion and place that one in the center (then you're done (exept the model freaks out..)) or, you can make a new work plane by pressing ']' and selecting the two oposite sites of your model, then a work plane will be placed in the center of those to planes. 
Then you have a usable workplane that you can use.

In fact it did freak out. The attachment shows the following run time error; R6025 pure virtual function call

Attach ipt files, not pictures.  Can't edit pictures or see clearly what you did in pictures.

Doesn't look to me like you have created correct mirror plane as shown in previous response.

Your Sketch1 is not constrained or placed with a logical orientation to the origin.
I recommend you start here http://home.pct.edu/~jmather/SkillsUSA%20University.pdf

Why?  Did you attach the correct file?  You didn't fix any of the issues in this file and there is no mirror plane?

You are very responsive. And your responses are very anticipatory. But that's good

Extrusion1 should be mid-plane (Symmetric).

Sketch2 is not constrained.

Sketch7 is not constrained.
Sketch9 is not constrained.
