    Shaper vices have a four or six bolt fixing.

    Yeh cheers from what I can find once you get up to, say the Elliott 14m and bigger they are 4 bolt vices but anything under that size and I can only find there are 2 bolt swivel mainly Alba and Elliott see here. http://www.lathes.co.uk/shapers/

    To big I think I will make like a table extension up and make it swivel as I do have a nice little Abwood fixed vice. Its not a necessary thing just useful as I want to make up some new bench vice jaws.
