    Default Anyone use a Kurt MaxLock HP420 5X Vise?

    We're have one of these and are going to invest in some of the dovetail jaws to mount onto it. First workpiece is a block of 17-4 SS - 3" x 5" x 9.5". Looking at the size of the piece against the size of the vise has me worried a bit about the actual weight capacity of the vise. Anyone have any experience with something similar?

    The parts are heat treated to 40Rc and it's being done in a 40 taper Haas, so I'll be taking it nice and easy when machining.

    By my estimate the stock weighs somewhere around 45 pounds.

    For posterity. 45 lbs in this vise wasn't a problem. .125" of dovetail surface.
