The Palmgren cross slide vise provides quick and precise positioning along the X and Y axes. This gives your drill press movement and positioning similar to the lateral and cross travel of a milling machine. Counter-balanced ball crank handles enable smooth movement and do not extend below the base, eliminating interference with the machine table. Cross feed dials may be easily adjusted to start at zero. Precision machined dovetail ways ensure accuracy with smooth operation of longitudinal and cross travel. This industrial cross slide vise has ball crank handles that spin independently of the crank ball for rapid movement. Index collars are graduated in 1mm increments.
