I have a Jet mill/drill. It came with an adjustable-angle vise that is
pretty close to useless: it sticks up pretty high over the table, and it is
about impossible to get it square in two out of the three axes.
I understand that for the best rigidity and accuracy I need to clamp pieces
directly to the table. But since this is just a mill/drill, a lot of what
I'm doing is relatively small and light work on soft materials, so a vise
often works fine.
I would like to get a better quality vise for milling. Can anyone help me
with specific recommendations of manufacturers or models to prefer or avoid?
