Oregon chain grinders
« on: November 26, 2014, 05:21:41 pm »
I was reading about the Oregon 511AX grinder and I see it has a sliding chain vise.  Which models use a tilting chain vise instead of the sliding.   I have a Tecomec right now and it is a fixed chain vise and I am thinking of getting one with the tilting vise.

The first two models of the Oregon 511AX grinders had a tilting vice. The very first had the twist handle as the difference from the 511A. The second model had the little spring loaded rollers on the ends of the vice.

The third model had the sliding vice.

You should be able to purchase a tilting vice for your Tecomec?

This came with everything about the tilting vice. It would convert a Oregon 510 into a 511A. Nose around and you might be able to find the first 511AX design?

This should be an assembly to make a non tilting Tecomec into what is essentially a second design 511AX type grinder?

How about the 510A did it have a tilting chain vise.

The Oregon 510A just had a swivel vice from the Tecomec factory but the 511A tilting vice will bolt right on.

I have a first design 511A with no light. After I bought it - I discovered that the threads on the retaining shank of the vice was worn out.

I ordered from this company the vice assembly in the 1st link for $123 and I thought it was just the vice and shank. When it came, it also had the bottom swivel (tilting) plate. I have been very pleased with it. They went up on the price $10 right after I bought it and recently have gone up another $10.

I don't know exactly how the different Tecomec models match up with the Oregon models? I'll leave that up to you.

There are some miss matches on the different ads for Tecomecs and Oregons - I don't trust everything I see. Chinese products make the pictures murky. There are people out there wanting close to a $1000 for a regular 511AX and $600 for what is a 510A so be real careful what you buy.

Ok I found a operating manual for a 511a and it does have the tilting vise.  Thanks for the help.
