Hi DJ, A batch of PalmControl vises are finished but I'm changing things on them for the bases. The vises are made from stainless. Price should be around $427.

Same as the cubic inches of a big block '69 vette

Hi Imorris, The PalmControl vise is a 10lbs basic vise. It is 4" inches in diameter and made from 303 stainless. It does have a detent release to the retainer holding the screw so it could be used as a low cost postioning vise. There is a batch 99% completed that will be avaiable soon. I wanted to hand engrave the logo on this first batch and I need to get that done yet.

Hi Steve
Like my old Vette, 67 SRay "Purple Haze" 427 w/500HP! It only weights 10 lbs? Sure would be nice to mount the top part on the BullsEye set-up.

Okay, Daniel you're reserved for one too. I wasn't planning on engraving serial numbers on them though.

Well, I posted last night after Daniel, hoping for #3, but I don't see my post anywhere? At any rate, I would also like to be on the list for whatever # and I do hope they are numbered as we all know they are not mass produced in some foreign land.
Thanks,
Gail

Steve I ask out of total ignorance. Did you have a special need in mind when you designed this vise? Before today I had not heard of a P C vice.
Thanks

A couple more questions on the PC vise. The slot for the jaws, I can't quite see or figure out if they are tee slots or dove tail machined slots?

The top jaws or what you might call the set in black, I don't see pins to drop into the bottom jaws how do they connect. Are the bottom jaws threaded to accept them or are there pins?

Steve

The jaws slide in the PC vise similar to John Madaole's pilot wheel vise. It is a hole that is partially exposed at the top for a matting cylinder attached to the jaw.

A pin plate is attached to a jaw using two screws. There is also a hole in the center of the jaw and bottom of the pin plate where a dowel pin can be used to permit one jaw to pivot (used without the screws). I prefer pin plates that screw on like this, similar to the GlideLock vise jaws. This is so that custom wood jaws can be made by the user to hold whatever object he or she is engraving. To make the wood jaws, start with 3/4" thick wood, cut it to the size and shape needed and drill two 3/16" diameter holes 1" apart. After a few years you have a drawer full of wood jaws to chose from.

Hey Cassie, The vise is meant to be a nicely made mid sized, that is still heavy/large enough to be comfortable to use yet light enough it can be hauled around.

Okay, DJ on one for you too.

I wasn't planning on having serial numbers on them. When I brought the AirGraver out in 2000 I engraved serial numbers on them. Then I heard reports from customers that the competitor would call some of them to ask what serial number was on their handpiece, as if they were keeping count. So I stopped placing serial numbers on the AirGravers at number 100. Probably best to keep them in the dark. I'll think about numbering these first few PC vises though. Maybe the first 30 or so could be numbered and then stop numbering them.

I agree with Jerry
Number the first 30

My employer said today, "wauw, on of the first 30, and then whenn your grandchildren get your tools whenn you have past away will say on ebay "signed thingamagig, no clue what it is for, $ 25,-" and that will be your legacy".
I bet to say different :-)
