Really excellent work. Very impressive! I agree, looks very fine in place, no paint needed.

Forging ahead regardless.

That is an excellent machine vice, very useful I'm sure, and a very good photo write up, thank you.  ( You could always paint it at some later time if the fancy takes you, but it does look good as it is! )  Dave

Thank you!
The production of the ring groove gave me some headaches.
A small note on the production of the T-slot.
Surely you can work it out with a hook chisel. I went a different way. I first cut the groove on the lathe from the top side. Then I drilled a 19mm clearance hole from the bottom side to the groove.
Now I was able to mill the groove with a Woodruff milling cutter that had approximately the same dimensions as the later groove.
I clamped the cutter with its 6mm shank from below through the 19mm clearance hole and the groove into a collet chuck.
With moderate speed and a lot of air cooling I could make the groove. But it did not fit in its height. The milling cutter only made a slot of 2,5mm and the width is not adjustable.
From China I ordered carbide T-slot cutters with the corresponding dimensions 1/2" x 1/4" x 5mm ; 6mm shank. When these were delivered, I re-milled the slot in the same way and brought it to a height of 5.5mm. The clamping bolts later have a height of 5mm and fit perfectly. These carbide cutters are actually intended for woodworking, but they also work in grey cast iron, but the speed and feed rate has to be adjusted.

Hello friends.
I have given my vice a little paint.  I think he looks even prettier now.
Hammerite hammer finish was used.

The zero-line carrier still has my new logo.
The knurled screw was also provided with the logo.

I had to make the clamping bolts for fastening to the turntable. The original material did not have enough strength and had stretched due to the tightening of the nuts.
I have now used tempered steel 42CrMo4.
Then the bolts were burnished.

I have secured the 0° and 90° positions with a dowel pin and two holes in the turntable.

The base plate of they vice also fits the VDH (versatile dividing head). I only had to make two additional clamping holes and a central receptacle for the centring pin of the screw hole in the base of the VDH.



I have also attached two zero-line carrier to the foot of the VDH.
