    Heavy milling vise

    I bought this old and very heavy milling vise cheap. Paid 60 for it which is roughly $70.
    200mm jaws and 250mm jaw opening. Swivelbase with degree scale.
    It fits nicely on my floor model drill press table. The base has 2 removable keys that fit in 18mm T-slots, but my drill press table has 16mm T-slots so I removed the keys and put the base diagonally on the table so I could use my own T-nuts to secure it.
    The vise is in very good condition. Very happy with this find.

    Very nice deal.. I should look around for a cheaper vice for my drill press, and other units.. In the mean time just have to go back, and forth between machines.. Only have to tram the mill though..

    My son got a Yuasa 3-way tilt vise for free at work. I think it's the 5" model which weighs 96 pounds. I don't think they make them anymore, but clones run about $500. He also got a couple regular 6" milling vises and a huge dividing head among other things.

    Looks like this:

    That does look handy for setting different angles... but I bet you lose at least 6 inches of headroom...

    Yes, it's huge. Sitting in the horizontal position it's 8 inches tall.

    For the time being I made some cheap quick fix parallels out of 50x5mm flat stock to support the workpiece. Might get some decent ones later.
    I checked the level of the vise and the parallels against the quill with a square and all looks spot on. Precise enough for my hobby tinkering anyway.

    The bigger the better. Got this on from Craigslist for $90. So heavy I can barely lift it.

    Craigslist used to have a lot of vice. Then they got rid of the personals. Lol

    Yes,
    Same thing the owner of it said to me..
    super rare from what I understand/ It does not take up much room in my little shop.. It was bought new and from the guy's partner in the gunsmith bossiness. Use to do a bunch of stuff for Winchester before FN took them over. When they split up things, he ended up with it.. Made in Taiwan but really nice quality.
