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 unitizes the bearings of a
turntable. The absence of bearings in the vise allows a lower

notes about turn-tables
How to center a turntable under
Place your vise on top and approximately in the center of the
turntable under your microscope. Adjust the distance/focus on your
microscope until your project, or the jaws of the vise are in
focus. Next, spin the turntable while looking through the microscope.
To center, while spinning the turntable, look into the scope and push
the whole turntable and/or your scope around until the view seen in
the scope is spinning right in the middle of the field of view.
From here, leave the position of the scope and position of the
turntable alone. To get to another location on the item
being engraved in the field of view, simply push the vise around on
top of the turntable.
This process is the same for the Glidelock vise, even though the
turntable is built into the vise.

Thanks for Ray Cover for this
information on a source of an inexpensive turntable that is fairly
heavy and rigid.
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. I assume they are China made. 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.
