  • Can you ID this vise?

    came my way recently, UN thread makes me drill press, rotating base and slot for indexing to a T slot makes me think mill, low profile makes me think shaper.....any one know the real answer? no markings that I've found

    thanks

    Sometimes on a shaper vise, the vise jaw farthest from the operator is the movable jaw and the the closer jaw is solid to take the cutting force of the shaper.

      Might be a Logan shaper vise.

        Looks a bit flimsy to me to be a shaper vise? The drilled spots in the bed of the vise suggest that at least the previous owner thought it was a drill press or low cost milling vise.

          It is a shaper vice, see those little 'feet' under the end of the movable jaws? They are to stop the vice rocking under the power of a shaper.

            I agree I think it's a small shaper vise.

              Yep Shaper Vise... From a Logan 8-inch Shaper I believe.

                I agree, shaper vise, and a Logan as well, but I think it looks more like the 7 inch version to me.
