So for a while a friend has been bringing these aluminum pieces for stock to make things with, he didn’t know what they were for and nether did I. He brought me another 5gal bucket of them , found a paper with them this time , I could make out angle lock vice soft jaws o_O.
Remove the fixed jaw and bolt the blue part in its place , slide on the soft jaw in the dovetails and tighten the 4screws walla interchangable soft jaws. I have 4” ,6” , 10” I figure I won’t cut them up anymore. I have about 100# of them I’ll sort them and see how many sets I have.

They are well made.

Isn’t it nice to have friends like that! That should last you a weekend or two. All my friends want me to make them stuff!

This is the remains of the paper. Couldn’t find any info on line for them,
unfortunately they have been outside in a bucket and the steel screws are rusted and hard to get out , have them soaking in atf/acetone

The guy still has more buckets of them , I haven’t tried them on my Kurt 6” angle loc yet as I’m in the middle of a production run for another week and I’m waiting for him to bring the rest of the buckets. For all I know they may be rejects.
But if they are good knowing this guy he’ll want $$ for them , maybe I shouldn’t of told him what they are for
Has anyone ever heard of Loc Jaw vise jaws.

Put them on my Kurt d688 , perfect fit but not as tall as the hard jaws by .380
faced off a chunk of aluminum no problem. I have way more of the jaw inserts than the master jaws.
Still waiting on the guy to bring the rest of the buckets and see what is there, he said they came with the house 5yrs ago.
Kurt master jaw mounting holes 3.88 on centers I have three sets , and one set with a broken screw
And one set mounting holes 3.755 on centers don’t know what they fit. Here’s some pics of them .

Robert do you want three sets of masters and inserts also ?
I’ll have to see what else he has and what he wants for them
I’ve been making him things for the material he brings
