    Default First Production Run with Heinrich Drill Press Vise

    Had to make some UHMW slides for my New Holland Combine ,they were $65.00 each from them I made my own for$3.75 each.This was first real job in any numbers that I've used it,only a dozen pieces very impressed with the Vise with notched jaws.Nearly paid for the Vise building this small amount.
    And the drill press worked flawless as well,a pleasure to operate.

    Heinrich makes very nice tools, and I still love your Drill Press.

    Nice job, maybe you should have run an extra 100 or so, there must be a demand if yours wore out.
    Setting up sounds longer than making, well usually.

    I love it when a plan comes together. And the tools pay for themselves.

    I just justified (to myself anyway) a new router table to use in making an exercise platform for my wife. It's going into the den so it should look nice.

    Make it fit.
    You can't win and there is a penalty for trying!

    That good idea ,in off season could make a bunch.Is there anything more durable with same slippery texture as UHMW.

    This project dragged out for a long time,but happy with finished results.The rack&pinion set up is a real bonus.

    Id try Nylatron, MDS filled Nylon. It is used for the slide pads on nearly all telescopic cranes and is also cast to make the large pulleys at the end of the boom and in the large multi wire rope blocks. Saving thousands of pounds at the end of the boom is huge for large cranes used to reach sideways a great distance.

    I have used Nylotron around the farm for years,used on telescopic lift on Self Propelled Auger.I wonder if chain would slide over it as well as UHMW.

    I want to give a update on Vise since I have got some mileage on it now,only negitive thing I found is when holding thin material under 3/16" swarf must be cleaned out on bottom where it slides on plate.
    That more of a house cleaning thing,every thing else is fantastic.I can't beleive how much user freindly the notched jaws are compared to standard jaws.
