Since the carbide 3D store is it of stock of the low profile vise, are there any similar options of good quality? A search through the community here had a few, but seemed too small.
I’ve been meaning to make up one of these for a while: http://www.stickvise.com/
Should scale up or down pretty well and be pretty easy to machine and equip with hardware-store bits (tap, bolts, threaded rod).
Ooh like that - a modified stick vise if you can mount it right on the table would give an extra 1/4 inch or so of Z on the Nomad. Every bit counts (or so it always seems for my projects). Please share if you do it!
If you’re interested, I was able to get the low profile vise from riogrande.com. They are still showing “in stock” on their website. Here’s the link to the vise.
Annea, thanks for the heads up. I just placed my order!
I checked out a stick vise. I may end up getting one of those for other applications. Not sure if this will work for me on my current project however.
