    The Wilton is a bit lighter than a Kurt/Kurt style. Approx same jaw height. Taller jaws for the Kurt are widely available, prob more so than the Wilton, but I see the attraction of a lighter vise if...

    It's a hand wheel closer, not a lever closer.

    And BTW, RSB (red stripe) collets are the more precise version of SB collets, also with longer noses. Sweet collets. Nice starter set.

    Posters can't delete after the editing period is over, 24hrs after posting, IIRC. But....no need to delete - just start another thread in the appropriate forum with a more descriptive title.
