These are fine for most uses, I have one and use it often.While I’m on the topic, I picked up the only Drill Press Vise they had in stock at HF (when I found they didn’t have the floor-stand drill press in my first post above) and find the flats end well before the stationary vise surface. So, I can’t support any workpiece with parallels (without stacking the across the gap). It’s a $20 hunk of scrap, but somewhat functional.
A quick look at Amazon shows other low profile drill press vises with a gap before the stationary jaw. What’s that about? I guess one can support a workpiece with a slab of wood cut to just under dimension, but flatness isn’t too good…
