Does anyone have experience with the import milling machine vises? There are pretty impressive looking 6" vises available in the $100 to $150 range. I realize that they do not compare favorably with the $600 Kurt vise but most of us home shop hobbyist have a hard time justifying the price difference. I only paid $600 for my Excello mill which required some rebuilding. Most of us have machines which will not hold tolerances of .00001 and we are not going to require the rigidity of heavy production and have no problem making three passes to get the job done. Are they adequate or can they be tweaked to be usable in the home shop?
