    Here is my 6" CNC vise with the holes in the bottom.

    Just as Fastest1 suspected, I painted it.

    Blue. I like blue. (its so hard to stay inside the lines...)

    I like that idea, though if you put the bolts slightly off center, you could tighten the T-nuts without having to dissassemble the vise (which you have to do with them right under the shaft, right?). I will have to check my vise out, see how it comes apart, and get to work on a similar solution. Thanks for the (non-photoshopped!) pix

    In my application, the three bolts that hold the vise down are under the stationary and movable jaws so I have no choice but to install the vise base, then assemble it.

    I service and clean the vise every 2 months anyway so I'm getting used to the strip down procedure.

    Don't forget to take some pictures and post them up when you get it all worked out.

    One of my production jobs requires a bunch of round stepped spacers to be made and since I don't have a CNC lathe yet I just make them in the mill. However it takes what seems like forever because I can only do one at a time in the three jaw chuck clamped in the vise. So this time I bought a SnapJaws extended V jaw set and replaced the stock jaws. Well, sort of....
    The 'budget' vise has different bolt spacing than a traditional Kurt vise so I had to made some adapters to make everything fit nicely.
    Did it ever work great. Solid clamping and easy to swap out parts without having loose bump stops here and there.







    Just another reason to get a new Kurt vise....

    So.... no one has pictures of their vise's?
    You know, the one's bolted down to the CNC machine table?

    Not the 'other' vises... we all have those.
    And I'm sure I don't want to see pictures of that...

    You want vises? Here's a pair of 3" Kurts on a Dyna 2800. This setup allows me to clamp a fixture plate large enough to reach the entire X, Y envelope.

    I have a Quad 1 vise, 2 Tormach CNC vises and 3 4 inch CNC vises from Little Machine Shop. I would LOVE to have another QUAD 1 vise.

    That's cool. My brother has 4 DYNA 2800's and thought he was pretty hot stuff till he saw my PCNC 1100.
