Yes, same here. I was patiently waiting (a year+ ?) and did a search a couple of weeks ago, only to find out that he was not making them. Certainly disappointing, but more importantly, I hope all is well with him.

I have used the WC version for about three years now, but the thing leave a lot to be desired...

I think his "day job" got to be very demanding . . .

IMHO, another problem was the price. . . I think he had the vise priced too low.

Should he start making them again he probably needs to get about $150.00 each for the vises.

Aluminum continues to rise in price, anodizing service is not cheap, CNC machine time cost, LH/RH threading is time consuming & even the simple little handle is about $9.00 each from McMaster-Carr.

But this is only my opinion.

actually, I think I would consider selling mine. I have hardly ever used it because my drill press is so pathetic that I pretty much do everything on my lathe. It's such a pretty vise too, but why buy a better drill press when my lathe is basically a 30" press laying on its side. I can't even remember what did I pay for that vise?

I am looking for a new vise myself.Sadly I was on the top of Pauls list and he had contacted me about getting one just before he stopped making them so I lost out.I could just shoot myself in the foot.I really need a good one.I have the rockler one and it has done very well but its time for a new one.I am going to wait a little while hoping Paul will come back.But if you run into something nice please let me know also.
if someone out there would like to sell theres let me know.
Thanks!

I'd like to have one too, but read the same post as mentioned. If anyone wants to sell one, let me know by pm.

Just a thought here. I ordered material today to start making these again. I appreciate the good words. I hope to be in production soon and will let the word out when they are available. I do not want to add to the list, however, but will do the current list first, and then go from there. As for $150, might have to do a small increase to cover rising production costs, but not that far! Probably in the 7-10% range, we'll see!
