    I love long weekends.
    Finally finished some things that have been on my todo list for too long.
    A basic speed handle for my mill vise, and an adapter for putting a drill motor on the knee:


    New base for my little Dumore drill press:

    Hi jkopel
    A basic speed handle for my mill vise ...
    That's an interesting looking vise, though I can't visualize which jaw moves and how. Did you make it? Maybe you could post a couple more pictures?

    It's the Quad-I vise (I'd link but they don't seem to be online any longer). The fixed jaw is the one closest to the camera with the handle, the movable jaw is pulled towards the user.

    Useful for CNC, and just generally. Makes it a bit easier to index a part off the fixed jaw when it's right in front of you, rather than buried under the spindle and ram. Useful for CNC as if you home off the fixed jaw, all the Y moves on a part held in the vise are in the Y+ quadrant, so every move commanded is just the positive displacement off the fixed jaw. Makes life just a little easier if you're doing things conversationally or hand-coding.

    I love that Dumore high speed drill. Super art-deco and very cool.

    Thanks guys.
    As for the vise, what Sun God said.
    It was made by a company called Hurco (I think) that is not making them anymore.
    The guy who made them is a member over on PM as it turns out, I did not know what it was when I bought it from a friend (who did not know either).
    The stationary jaw in the front took a little getting used to, but now I love it.
    It is massive and smooth to use, and it also has slots in the bottom so you can stand it on its side (which I did to hold the knee adapter while cutting the teeth).

    Thanks for the info and extra pictures. That's one fine looking vise. I Googled the Quad-I and it looked like an efficient design.

    Shop made tools? Strange thing, I started out with model building and ended with making tools and gadgets for the shop.

    A few to be shown here:
