Heh you know, I was thinking the opposite. That the pins would move
back into the jaw too easily. But I would think a quick spritz of
cleaner or a few minutes in the ultrasonic cleaner would take care of
Definitely a good question to ask them if someone went to their Westec
That would certainly be a problem if you had to take the jaw off to
clean it constantly. But if you only had to take it off once a month
or two, it wouldn't be too bad.
Fran & I are doing good. The condo purchase has been a roller coaster
ride, but it may happen next month. Jeeze, I about broke my toe twice
by accidentally kicking boxes stacked in the hallway. :(
Very nice -- looks improvisable by mortals, as well.
How do you pop the pins out? with that air ditty?
I can see a sucka really cryin, after crashing one of those jaws, tho.
Did you see their Quick point ditty? What exactly does that do??
Their stuff looks beautifully made. But they seem to have only those two
products. Good luck to'em!
OK, after E-mailing the US division of Lang I was sent a PDF brochure.
And after another E-mail asking for pricing on certain part numbers
here is an over-view of the pricing.

They have angle plates in every degree.

Hi Everybody - My name is Tony Novinska and I'm the National Sales
Manager for Lang Technovation in Waukesha. My work phone is
262-446-9850 if you ever wish to discuss our products, get pricing,
etc. We have a range of about 25 products in hundreds of
configurations. All you have to do is call. Really.
Or, you can spend your time in Forums speculating about pricing and
Not at all Bob. You were right on. I just find it funny that after
an inquiry, there's a buzz about a product, but my phone is silent.
That's all. Have a good day and I'm sorry to intrude on your forum
I like your vise jaw set, would work nicely for holding mold inserts and
I'd like to add one to my tool box. But it'd cost me almost an entire
mortgage payment which in these uncertain times is much better off being
stuffed into a mattress than spent on luxury items.
Betcha' I'm not the only one with that point of view...

First this is not an intrusion ino the forum.
Since it was taken over by trolls and psycopaths, there was little
about machining. Your reply being one of the rare and welcome
Secondly, although there may be a "buzz" about the product, everyone
looking may see that this will fill some need, perhaps in the future,
it is interesting, and file the information away for when they need
it, ( hopefully they remember where it was ) .
Thirdly, thanks again for posting something about machining not
squabbling, or politics.
Fourth if some grumpy old fart rips on you here, ignore it, or laugh
at him... That is his "attempt" at a "persona".
nt a PDF brochure.
You got it Bob - actually, ironically enough, "my phone rang". Ahhh,
the internet. It must be true, I read it here!
All joking aside, I really appreciate the fact that you took my
message as levity as that was my intent. You are dead on with all the
crap the is the internet. What a time sucker this thing is, huh?

Well, I look at it this way... If it saves you time and money in the
fact that you don't have to make costly parallels, can set it up
quickly and accurately every time and it's accurate and repeatable,
then it's an investment that will give you a quick return.
However, if this is something that will not, then you are correct that
it's a luxury and I'd wait for the "ramp up" that will be coming again
at some point.
A set of jaws is $578.00 plus shipping (UPS Ground to CA, for example
is about $11) and it includes a fixed jaw, moveable jaw, two sealing
plates and an air gun. Honestly guys, I feel like a drug dealer some
times. I intentionally sell one set to a guy with 19, 6" Kurts for
example. Only to have his boss call me back and yell at me to sell
them more because the guys in the shop are fighting over them or
they're always taking them off and putting on another vise.
Call me evil. Go ahead.
Thanks for listening guys and have a good day - don't cut any fingers
That was Half-Nutz that you were replying to as "Bob". I have NEVER
posted with a handle other than BottleBob in the 12 years I've been online.
And I agree, that you're not intruding whatsoever since it's very much
On-Topic. And you're not spamming the group, since *I* was the one who
brought your product to the group's attention and was asking questions.
You got a call? That's cool. I posted your site address in the
course of a thread called "Need to drill angle in cnc" over in
Hey, do I get a finder's fee if you make a sale as a result of someone
seeing your puppies here or over on PM? Just kidding. LOL
Or you could use priority mail (in my experience normal 1-2 day
delivery) with boxes provided free from the post office and the they
mail them to you free of charge as well.
Advantage you can stuff the boxes as full as you want up to 70 lbs
(USA) and it's a fixed price for all. Example fixed price for shipping
small box 5-3/8? x 8-5/8? x 1-5/8? is $4.80 or larger box 11" X 8.5" X
5.5" is $10.35.
For your logo place it on label and tape.
I don't share it.
How soon before you think used Haas Mini Mills start selling for
$8,000? For that kind of money why not buy a few and store them till
the market eventually gets better.
You would not believe what I'm buying in the LA area and what the
going rate for quality stuff is.
Our shop is now up to 10 sets of Talon Grip vise jaws and I'm sure
I'll get the go ahead on purchasing a set of Vario Tec Vise Jaws to
evaluate. None of them will be mounted to cheap Chinese Kurt knock off
San Diego, CA
Good suggestion, however, we have proprietary packaging with foam
inserts to protect as best we can our products. All USPS does is
provide different size boxes. I am currently in review of all
shipping methods and both UPS Ground and USPS Priority Mail utilize
the conveyor "drop" system, which can be hard on heavy (10 to 35lb)
packages. So, in the interest of minimal damage to our product, we
are currently looking at UPS 2nd day saver and the same for FedEx
parameters. Most of our stuff, like Rockwell 60 hard Vario Tec jaws
are impervious to what the mail can to do them, however the packaging
that houses them? Not so much. Even our Quick Point plates are case
hardened, so nothing's really going to happen to them, but the more
they are allowed to shift in transit and the contents get jangled
around, the more they are like the chick fighting to get out of the
Have a good day, guys!
