I have one of those, what is so bad about them ?

Granted, you need to dis-assemble them, and take a file
to the dovetails, and clean them up a bit.
A hour or two working them over, and adjusting the gibs
makes them work good.

The single way of a "milling attachment" isn't any better
than the HF cross slide vice.

Just have had bad luck with the new line of them as i mentioned the older ones they use to carry were good and worked

I'm not a spelling nazi but I have a vice, and my milling machine has a vise.

No not at all, your the "Spelling asshole".

So if nothing to add to help the Op, why not cram it ?

Ill take the one out of the scrap heap it should be a seasoned piece
now and ill see what i can do with it as it would be nice to have one that works maybe i can get it smoothed out.

Thanks Digger!

Doug, are you familiar with the term "projection"?
