This thing is too big for my mill as you can see. It would be better suited for someone who has something way bigger.

Anyone interested in trading. Its an Eron in descent shape. It has a few drill marks and the jaws need to be ground. Could be made into a solid vise.. I've been using it without issue.

Gotta be near Louisville KY since it would cost a fortune to ship.

Yeah, it looks like a shaper vise to me too. What are the jaw dimensions?

I believe that its a mill vise, originally by Cincinnati Milling machine co. Before the Kurt style vises became popular, they were on every horizontal and vertical mill around. Pretty good vises, but had a tendency for the movable jaw to raise up, making it difficult to hold things flat without taking precautions.

I'm pretty sure its an Eron. I can make out the E*ON on the top. The guy I got it from said he got it from GE and it was on a mill.


Its a big solid vise but its just too big for me. It takes darn near everything I have to get it on and off the mill

Axkiker: I did not intend to imply that your vise was made by Cincinnati Milling machine co, just that this style was popular years ago and many of them were made by Cincinnati. Yours and many other companies copied them. I am not even sure that Cin. was the original.

I'd be tempted to do the trade, but Ive got an old B&S that size that doesnt get used as it is. The irony is that I bought it at a shop auction where it was being used literally as a door stop.
