We are hard at work producing the parts to make the VX 20 vise. I thought I would share some of the processes that go into making the vise. The picture above shows some parts right after machining. After machining there are a lot of burrs and tool marks in the parts. To get rid of all of the marks and soften all of the corners the parts are put into a vibratory tumbler with little cone shaped dense plastic media. After many hours of tumbling the parts come out with a very uniform finish and all the edges are smooth. After the finishing process the parts are sent out to be anodized and then they are ready for assembly.
