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 untilizes the bearings of a
turntable. The absence of bearings in the vise allows a lower
profile which provides greater rigidty.
lower center of gravity provides stability so that the vise is less
likely than a high profile vise to fall over when titled.

Notice from Steve.. Jan 28, 9:14pm:
These first five vises are sold. There is a larger batch in the
works that should be ready late February. I can leave the "add
to cart" button live here on the website so that people can still
order, but they will be back ordered until then. Thank you,

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. 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.
