    Is it on top of a separate X-Y table? Or the table is an integral part of your mill/drill?

      This was a old industrial wood router that I converted to drill press,just drilling no milling.

          Looks like it would be a little weak where the screw goes through the vertical plate. Other than that nice vise.

              Southern Wisconsin was the cradle of a surprising number of industrial tools, tooling, and machines. Much of it is now closed or moved overseas, but there are still some big names in the area.

                We had some Milwaukee machine tools in our toolroom when I started my apprenticeship in the late 70's.

                  I think it will stand up alright ,they have 3/16" roll pin in the collar that I'm sure would be weakest link.

                  No not a wood vise,was wanting 12" opening had to settle for 10.5" with 8" jaws.Talked to Heinrich and they said this vise has been around about as long as dirt.Had a Kurt style but prefer this style for drill press,not a fan of sliding handle ( hence the speed hanldle) or the U joint handle.The notched jaws will be good,and lots of clearance for thru drilling,it is 5" tall.

                  Bought this from KBC had to wait 2-1/2 months as Factory was out stock,could not find any reviews on these.The quick action Vises seem to be the biggest seller,just wanted one in this size.

                    Sorry Brian misread your reply,the small plate with bushing in it to keep speed handle aligned in last pic.The first 2 pics is how it came,I built the plate with attachments to match my table.I machined the collar with hex on if ever need wrench that pins on in place of sliding handle.
