I've been very happy with my Phase II Kurt clone. They have some of the better quality Chicom stuff, the QC tool holder I have is superior too. Little pricier

I bought a 6" from Enco without the swivel base for $130. I love it. The front edge is flush with the rear of the table (so it doesn't hit anything) and sticks
