Yes.  But other than the tilting functionality the vice was just like a 510a model. It had the swing arm clamp with the ball or cone on the end. Some of the balls or cones were red and some were black.

The chain sharpener at the Husqvarna dealer closest to me is a 511A with a light. The closest Dolmar dealer has a Windsor labeled grinder that is essentially a 511A.

I get the idea that the 511AX vice is cheaper to make as many parts are plastic. The 510 and 511A vices are all metal except for the knobs. Both vices will wear out with heavy commercial use. 3/8 pico and .325 NK chains are more problematic in these vices because of the smaller driver links

In looking around it appears the Jolly Star (511AX) base plate for the tilting type vice part number is K00200165

I think I am going to look for a 511A.  The cam style clamping does not bother me.  I will probably shop around for something new.

Take your time and carefully compare your sources and options.

Well I found a used 511A that was in very good condition.   I received it about 2 days ago and it came with a mounting also.

Today I attached some square tubing to the side of my bench that the mount for the sharpener will slide into.

I tried sharpening one chain on it today and it works great.   I will have to get a pic tomorrow.    I am going to do another chain tomorrow.

Beware of the Chinese grinding wheels . . . Their concept is not the same as the old original Oregon wheels.

Here's what I did . . .  http://www.diamondwheelinc.com/chain-saw-wheels.html

Yep already have put one on that was on my Tecomec.   Love those wheels, no build up, no dressing, just always keeps it's shape from cutter to cutter.

As you have both grinders, essentially a 510, and a 511A - there side by side, study the differences and tell us what you see around the vice area and how it mounts?

I have a Tecomec Jolly vice on my 511A and Cut4fun didn't notice any difference. There isn't any difference except the color or shape of the knobs and that is more of a time of manufacture thingy.

Ok I took a couple of pics today.   The black one is the Oregon and the blue one is the Tecomec.
I took the chain vise assembly off of the Oregon and tried it on the Tecomec and it was a perfect fit.
Now that I know this I think I will get the tilting vise assembly and put it on the Tecomec and set it up for
.325 and use the Oregon for .375 chains.

The first chain I sharpened on the Oregon sharpener  with the vise tilted.   This is what I am using it on right now.
I was doing some noodling of some logs that would not split worth a crap so speed is what I was looking for.
The chain did perform great.  I am very pleased.
