Re: now that the mill is ready on to the vises........
- I use the crappy vise that came with my mill for holding small parts for welding. A perfect use for the POS vise.

It has been very time consuming... :) Truth be told, there is one feature that was not machined on my RF31. The 22-degree slope on each side of the slot on the back was done on my little Rusnok mill. I didn't have a good way to fixture it to the correct angle since the work was so large. The Rusnok allowed me to nod the head instead---the work was fixtured flat on the table.
