    I have a 5" AutoWell made in Taiwan vise that I bought from Penn Tool in New Jersey
    many years ago, it is top quality. I would even say equally as good as a Kurt. Really.
    I have it on my small Clausing 8520 mill and it is perfect without being too big for the
    mill. The travels on this mill are 15 for the X and 5 for the Y. I milled the coolant trough
    off the back of the vise, so you can crank the Y fully back. Using the front tee slot on
    the table, the vise is perfectly flush with the back of the table. Most have recommended
    a 4" max vise for my type of mill, but the 5" worked out perfect. Just my ramblings.
