    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..

    Re: Heavy milling vise

    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.

    Re: Heavy milling vise

    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.

    Sold my mill a few weeks ago. The buyer didn't want to buy the 4x4 mill vice with it so I will keep it for the drill press.Name:  20210116_100659.jpg

    Bought this 15" x 15" Troyke x,y table cheap on ebay a few years ago. I have one of those Shoptask Mill, Driil, Lathe setups. My plan is to remove the mill head and build a separate milling machine. One day, when I have time-haha
