I only have the July 2011 Rockler catalogue which doesn't show a milling vise. I'm not sure if you refer to one like this, or a cross vise. If the latter and it's made in China, unless there has been vast improvements in the manufacture of the cross vises in the last few years, I'd avoid them like the plague. I bought one some years ago and it had so much play when changing direction as to be useless for milling. I only used it as a drilling vise for wood and gave it away to a friend when I bought this mill/drill with a substantial XY table.Does anyone own one of these? (Page 57 in the spring II 2006 catalog, item number 20259.) reg price $79.99 US on sale $69.99 (free shipping on orders over $75) It has me tempted but I haven't been shopping for one so I have no idea if this is a good buy or not or how well it is made...
So if you have one tell us about it, if you have someone elses (same general price point) tell us about it.
