I'm also interested in this. I have a 3" inexpensive tilt vise that cannot be called accurate or long lasting, and the clamping pressure is not great. It sits pretty high, so I'm looking for something lower profile, more accurate, and with wider jaws for milling. What has been your experience?
I sure like the Glacier vise's, would you go for the 4" premium for $599 or the 4" standard for $349 or the 5" standard for $379.
I torn the 4" premium can clap laying on its side and open's to 5". I also wonder if the 5" standard is to large for my g0704.
One great thing Glacier said they take PayPal, that make paying easy for me
I have 2, 5" tormach vises and 1, 4" vise purchased from little machine shop. My experiences with Kurt and Orange vises was limited and previous to owning the Tormachs, but I do not feel limited with the Tormach vises.
My vises are all flangless type.
Precision ground on the out side surfaces.
Can be mounted sidewise or vertically.
All three of them can be mounted on the table at the same time with a bit of room to spare for G54, G55, and G56 operations in one cycle.
