    The issue I'm solving is that the machine table is small along with the work envelope along the Y-axis, so I dont have room for a vise (the machine table is a vise). I dont need to make angled cuts...

    This is for a mortising machine (woodworking tool). I hesitated to mention it because I find the 'wood moves, who cares' sentiment to get in the way of useful advice.

    Sounds like I should have posted a wanted add when I was looking for those. They're very handy for small work, I used them to make a set of 45 degree hinges not long ago.

    These look like a really smart design. I have Kurt 3 in 1 jaws for one vise, they're very useful but can only manage basic angles like 15, 30, 45.

    Good afternoon! Wondering if anyone has experience with this vise, do you like the function of it?
