Default How can I get a Glide lock Vise?

I really like the flat bottom on the glide lock vise, I find on the magna block and the standard block from grs are not very smooth after awhile. Is there a Price on them?

Hi Danny, I'm still making prototypes of the glide-locks. After each one I think of something to improve and then I go through the process again with a variation. This is what happened with the PalmControls. There were like 14 prototype variations before releasing the PalmControl. Although, I'm sure (I hope anyway) I'll run out of ideas long before version 14 of the glide-locks. There is a more basic version in the works that should be released soon though and they will work smooth.

Only if you engrave it and send it back like Mike did. I’d like scroll and bulino scenes on a 25 pound base plate please.

O.K. !!
What would You Like in Bulino,? The Big Five,
Seeing that it would be Out of Africa.

But I think that it would be very Costly for Me to Send It Back.
So Could I Keep It Please Please Please.

I can Send You Very Nice Photos ?

Ok - you can keep it - but you have to pick it up and engrave one of his first then go home.

Steve,
Send it to ChrisB and the shipping and the deposit would be about what Chris could open his own machine shop...
I've seen one of the proto and they are nice but like Steve said "He just can't leave things alone" and keeps coming up with improvements and new Ideas...
Chris come to the engrave-in at Scott's and meet some of all of us...
Hope to see you soon...
Jerry
