      I have two vises on my BP. The first won was from Parlec, the second was the premium vise from Shars. Both are 6". The bed heights are identical. I needed a .007" shim behind the the fixed jaw on the Shars to get the fixed jaws to line up. I also have a Shars 6" CNC type vise I use when I need to hold parts "on end".

It's nice to be able to grip both edges or both ends of something- especially long pieces, or where you can only grip onto a short bit of the workpiece. These also work well on a surface plate where you need to align pieces. You can set the vises on 3 sides- the jaws are flush to the sides, so they can be set with jaws vertical, and in mirror image fashion.

        One of my more useful projects- and one which I completed.

        And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
        You will find that it has discrete steps.
