Default Cross Slide Vise Drill clamp

Not sure exactly what you call it, but see some on amazon, but none with good reviews. I have some that clamp but don't move in the x and y. Any recommendations on one that works well and is fairly precise? Thanks!

we use Palmgren brand x-y vises and rotary tables at work, pretty decent products

Assuming you're putting this under a drill press, almost any of the slides will have some play in the threads forcing you to align in one direction...problem with end-play...

...unless you get up in the heavy duty commercial types...then you'll need another shop...

What're you doing with it ?...the application might drive different answers...metal? wood? big? small? intricate work?

If you're using it for drilling wood, any of them will work...just get the size that will fit in the press and will accommodate the size of wood...

I use a fence, clamps, stops, jigs, etc...for repeat work, especially when I need "precision". My x-y'er is sitting somewhere under something collecting dust (and rust, no doubt)...

I bought a Chinese made and got what I paid for. Slop in the threads is correct but the one I have, and I assume most others are like it, works on dove tail guides which have a free play adjustment which helps. If possible also pick one that allows you to lock it in position once you have it where you want it. They are made for machining metal and like all other tools for machining metal you can go from quality levels where accuracy is wishful thinking to accuracy that will satisfy NASA. Prices vary accordingly.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I bought one from HF. Fairly cheep, and I got what I paid for.
I did manage to get it to hold my parts while I drilled them, but the material was aluminum so it drilled easy.

The prices seem to jump from under $50 to near $300. I would like to have the $300 model but it won't be today.

Good luck.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
