I got this while visiting the Ottawa location and noticing that it was marked down quite a bit. I have a small Taig mill, and the vise that came with it (though well constructed) is a little skimpy for milling anything other than aluminium.
As a vise, it works perfectly; I've never had a problem with the work moving while milling it. The ergonomics are what irritated me a bit. The knurling on the handle is wishful thinking. I've got pretty good grip strength, but you'll definitely need a Tommy bar to even move it. There is a simple adjustment screw under the vise to tighten down the jaw, which is a little bit of an annoying place, but it works fine.
I was pleasantly surprised with the tolerances. From my measurement, it is definitely ground to 0.0005", which works fine for me. I'm definitely happy with the purchase, especially because the price is absolutely unbeatable.
