Benefits to low profile
**The low profile allows tilting of the block without the viewing location moving away from the field of view in a microscope. It stays centered, in a manner similar to the larger Glide-Lock vise and the Dovetail low profile vise.
** The vise has no bearings.  It unitizes the bearings of a turntable.  The absence of bearings in the vise allows a lower profile.

Low Profile Turntable Vise Price $505 (out of stock)


 



Vise Leg Support

Attach this Vise Leg to the Low Profile Turntable Vise to support a barrel or non-balanced weighed objects on one side to prevent the vise from tilting from the weight.

Tips and notes about turn-tables

How to center a turntable under a microscope
Place your vise on top and approximately in the center of the turntable under your microscope. Adjust the distance/focus on your microscope until your project, or the jaws of the  vise are in focus. Next, spin the turntable while looking through the microscope.  To center, while spinning the turntable, look into the scope and push the whole turntable and/or your scope around until the view seen in the scope is spinning right in the middle of the field of view.    From here, leave the position of the scope and position of the turntable alone.   To get to another location on the item being engraved in the field of view, simply push the vise around on top of the turntable.    This process is the same for the Glidelock vise, even though the turntable is built into the vise.

Turntable is made from solid steel and can rust.  The surface can rust more easily in an area of high humidity.  To keep in like new condition wipe it down with either a light oil or for better protection using the rust and tarnish preventer cream. 



Stop rust & tarnish. Used to help prevent corrosion of steel, brass and copper.  Use it to wipe on metal to hope prev+ent rust or tarnish.   A good method to apply is cut a rag approx 3"x3" square and coat it well with the cream working it through the rag.    Use it wipe down the object.  Store the rag in a plastic bag that can then be reused.   The cream is non toxic .    However, if you are allergic to sheep's wool it could cause an allergic reaction.

Thanks for Ray Cover for this information on a source of an inexpensive turntable that is fairly heavy and rigid.   

The Lindsay Turntable has been built with large ball bearings and a larger diameter race to increase stability without wobble.   However, if at this time you cannot justify the price of my turntable, Engraver Ray Cover discovered more cost effective solution: a Shimpo turntable that can be found on pottery making craft sites.  I assume they are China made. At the bottom of the page of this link, is the "Shimpo" turntables list of banding wheels. The one to get is model BW-25L.  It is 9.875" in diameter x 2.25" high and at $68.88 (at the time of writing) it's hard not to recommend it for beginners or anyone with a tight budget.  I noticed a little wobble in the one I tested, but it wasn't bad.
