Hello all..

was at harbor fright tools the other day and they had a small 2 1/2 inch drill press vise on sale for $4.99...

Jaws: 2-1/2''W x 3/4'' deep
2-1/2'' max. opening
Base: 5-3/4'' x 5-3/4''
Bolt pattern: 4-5/16'' W x 7/8'' to 3-7/8'' long (4 slots)
Overall dimensions: 6-1/2''L x 5-1/2''W x 1-3/4''H
Weight: 3.6 lbs

Even at the regular price this isn't a bad buy at $9.99

I impoved this item for modeling by taking a flexiable refrigarator magnet phone card that the local hospitials give out and cut out 2 squares the size of the jaws and put over them.. to give me soft jaws to hold my parts.
