Very poor kit in terms of instructions or pictures. Not worth the money. It could be if more effort was spent on documentation. Not all Shopsmith users are highly experienced.

I'm very disappointed in this kit. It came with the vise as loose hardware in the box with 5 pages of plans. There was no material list, hardware list, or project instructions included and nothing on the Shopsmith website to help. The only thing which helps to figure this out are the pictures on the product description webpage. The project plans have a number of misspellings which make me wonder if there are errors in the measurements as well. For the $50 price, I expected to have a complete kit (including materials and instructions). Given the comments above, I'm curious why Shopsmith hasn't fixed the numerous problems with this "kit".

Another very nice option from Shopsmith! A useful set of plans and quality hardware. The sliding base really increases the adjustability of the vice. While the plans are a bit difficult to interpret in places, with a little study it all falls into place.

My low rating is due to the total package and the high price for what you get. All is NOT Shopsmith quality. First off, and I realize this may be obvious, but all you get is a few sheets of plans and a small bag of hardware for $49.99. The plans have several typos (Not Shopsmith standard) and a few of the mesurements will not work and have to be adjusted to fit the vise these jaws are made for. For example, the "Basic Jaws" can't be 7/8" from the bottom (notch) and 1-1/2" over all and still fit on the 1-1/2" vise plate. The holes for the screws are 5/8" from the top and require at least a 1" notch instead of the 7/8". But this small 1/8" error isn't the main thing, it's the fact that these measurements won't make a suitable jaw. Also, you have to find some kind of hardwood (not specified) that is 23/32" thick for the top plates of one plan, and other dimensions for other jaws. All in all, I was not impressed and the only good thing about this kit is the quality bolts (hardware) but I'm not sure they are worth $49.99. Anyway, not the usual quality from Shopsmith. Sorry guys.
