    What is the groove with (apparent) bolt holes just inboard from the hard jaws?
    Is that to bolt down moveable stops?

    The center fixed jaw is one solid piece. No individual hard jaws. Kinda like it. No bolts holes to fill with chips......................

    The grooves are for those Talon Grips.............I've never used them? And yes, you can bolt a stop in the groove too..................

    The movable jaws can be 180'd to use carve smart soft jaws...............the center jaw can be swapped out to accept carve smarts or just plain old bolt on soft jaws.

    I like the talon grips, use them regularly. Better I think than the ones that have the serrations on the whole length. Thanks for sharing your opinion of the vises. I am sure we will get to hear more about them once you use some of the extras.

    I used them for the first time recently, worked great. You can see stops at the left end.

    Happy Thanksgiving folks................grateful for all the Lord has done for me..............................

    The boy had fun with an old saw blade............enjoyed it so much I told him he's gettin' one in his Christmas stocking......................the 1 1/4" blades need a little stronger wrist to wrap up, but they bounce a little more...............I grew up so poor this would have the best toy ever!..............simple things, eh?

    So far so good with the Orange vises..................I really like them, fit and function are very good. This job(1000 pcs) and few others like it come around every other month or so...............I was always going to build fixtures with Mitee Bite uniforce clamps, but decided the versatility of dual station vises would serve me better over a wide range of repeat work I do.



    ...................................

    Made some new clamps.............the toe clamps that come with the vises were just a little too long(not by much). Sneeking these between each vice lets me get 4 Orange vices plus 2 Kurt 3600's on the end of the table.

    Not being familiar with these vices, is there any float in the pockets to allow for tolerances on the parts that go in them?

    Looks like you are using the narrow hard center jaws, did you make your own with bolt holes or how are the center fixed jaws being held in?

    Vises look good, but I think I can see why you were considering a live tooled with sub spindle lathe.

    I'm wondering this as well. Those hard middle jaws look like they will take a standard 4" jaw bolt pattern without hitting anything important, and I had considered doing this at the old shop since we had several parts that were *just* too big to fit front and back with the carvesmart center jaw installed but needed softjaws.

    I pin my soft jaws. If you look closely, each jaw has a dowel pin that locates it left to right.

    The center jaw carrier is stock from Orange. 6" jaws bolt right in.

    Must be a newer model of center block, mine does not have bolt holes, there are a few times I would like to use the narrow center instead of the Carve smart center to be able to get wider parts in.

    .........................
    Post up the vid of doing it the opposite way !

    I think between these vice pics and Wheelies thread I’m going to spring for a few of these double Orange vises.

    I do seriously appreciate when people take time to post up this stuff. You can spend hours researching, but at the end of the day a few photos and comments with real setup pics is better info

    Merry Xmas!

    These Orange units are the first 6" doubles I have owned and they are pretty sweet.............I have 2 Kurt 4" doubles and.............eh, they do the job. If Kurt's 6" doubles are similar, I'd go with Orange...................

    On the double Orange that you have, can you put the Talon jaws on both outside moveable and not have Talons in the middle fixed , and grab a big piece of 1” thick 6061?

    Like a single station? The rear jaw can be made stationary and allow for one big single vise.........................

    This should help speed up set ups...............the Doosan came with the toolsetter but the previous owner never set it up.................bought the spindle probe and a tech got it all dialed in yesterday..............
