One of a range of two cross vices which are used to accurately position a component in two directions on a drill press table. Adjustable gibs ensure consistent accuracy and both sides are lockable for the desired position. There are dials on both the lateral and longitudinal travel making drilling precise co-ordinates possible. The milling of non-ferrous materials and plastics is well within the capacity of these well made vices.

Heavy duty - great value - works fineWent to my local Axminster in Nuneaton and had a look at this vice and also the precision one with a rotating base. Bought the 100mm size and was more than happy with the price. The shop manager provided great support and help even though my purchase was really quite modest considering all the workshop machinery in the store.

75mm Cross ViceBought one of these for work holding on my pillar drill. Chose it as it seemed better constructed than cheaper versions. I stripped it upon receipt, cleaned up the raw edges, replacd the gibbs with fitted brass strip and freed up the handwheel spinners. After carefull assembly it seemed the part and the x-y travel was smooth with very little side to side movement.
