    Before I did the work you see above I tried to get Ellison to take off the toolchanger as that was the big obstacle. They politely said 'hell no'. Apparently a big pain in the butt job to do. Also...

    Just talked to Eric at Orange Vise to ask some more questions about specifics and he helped me out with all the details. Looks like it will work great. Went ahead and ordered the Delta IV 4" x 7.5"....

    Looks like I need to take a hard look at those Orange vises. I am not doing production at this point so a little fiddling to set up a part isn't horrible. And at half the price it's the difference...
