Anyone know of plans out there to make an angle lock style vise. Wouldnt mind giving it a while on a fairly small scale at some point. Would be curious to see the drawings.

Thanks

At projectsinmetal.com (which has NO relation to this site) in the milling projects section there is a Kurt-type vise about 2" wide. You have to register to get the drawings. It's also at Instructables.com. Heres a link:http://www.projectsinmetal.com/free-metalworking-project-plans-a-small-low-profile-vise-for-the-mill/

So I have been going through the projects in metal site and really like it. It gave me several more ideas.

My question is how would you go about making the jaws of the vice perfectly parallel? I kinda thought at first maybe the rear moving portion would self align to the front but that doesnt appear to be the case. Puzzled ????

I don't have a clue what one is!, I do posses a palmgren lever actuated 6" machine vise the burgulars missed!
You just slide it up and pull the lever, bought it in the US and brought it back hand luggage!, heavy

See if you can find the patent for the commercial one. That will give you enough info to get going

Good call... here is some interesting reading if anyone is curious.

So after looking through the patents as J Tiers suggest I think I think I may be figuring out some things. See what you think.

Several of the design pics lead me to believe that maybe there is no need to cut / grind the jaws while on and preloaded to the vise. This was my initial thoughts. Could the rear movable portion allow enough clearance between the nut / screw / bed that it could tilt the minimal amount needed ????

Or is there a way that they load the jaws then grind everything true after assembly ? I guess I could see this as an option.

My pull down vise has 2 rings in the front bottom of the movable jaw that has 2 o-rings in them to lift the jaw slightly so when it's tightened it allows the jaw to be pulled down. we're only talking a few .001's lift.

hummm Thats interesting... Hard for me to visualize all this without actually having one.

I guess that acts as a way to raise the jaws slightly and possibly as a wiper ?
