I found a good deal on a 4" Kurt vise ( way cheaper than the $650 brand new price) and decided to build a stop for it instead of paying close to $100 for that.

I used 5/8" round stock and 1" round for the cross bar. I think it turned out quite well.

The last two pics are the shorter cross bar I made.

I'll bet that will come in handy for repetitive cuts, Jeff.
Looks great!

The three hole part in the vise is for the drivelines. Both hydro driveshafts and rag joint couplers. I make them in lots of 10 so the stop will make my life easier.

Making parts by the bunch is cheaper than one piece at a time. That being said, are you reducing the prices of your parts?

That's how I keep the prices low. I've "eaten" the last couple of metal price increases. One thing I can't control is USPS pricing.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
