I'm selling my brand new Benchcrafted Glide C vise. Why you ask? I can't open a couple of the drawers because they hit the handwheel (1/2" overlap - no way to adjust things). Consequently, I will be installing a Classic vise instead. My mistake is your opportunity.

Here's what you get for $200 (includes shipping - US only)

I also have a paper copy of the instructions and a tap for the flange bolt holes

What is not included: the leg vise chop, the crisscross

PM me if you are interested.

Earl, I wish I had a bench worthy of fine tools but alas I'm still in the "under the apple tree" catagory
Not sure I agree that there is no way to adjust things. :)

Believe me, I thought about that long and hard, but the drawer slide mounts on the drawers are also in the way.

I think the Classic will look good and might even make the circles look like a unified design instead of random round pieces of wood inset into the chop.
Build a short extension on the table to clear the drawers.
The hole that runs thru the leg is the problem. In order to move the vise, I'd need to drill a new 1-1/4" hole and then the larger hole for the acetal bushing. I just missed the 8" diameter when I was designing the cabinet. If the cabinet was 40" long rather than 41" long none of this would be a problem. I sized the cabinet using a 7-1/2" wide chop, thinking the handwheel was that size. Basically, I designed myself into a corner with no outs.
I get it in your scenario but I think I would prefer the wheel on the BC stuff but for the Hovarter stuff I think the classic style is a win, either style would be. However, with that said I think the classic hardware for BC looks great and the drawer fronts will match it better than the wheel in my honest opinion.
That didn't take long.

The Classic matches up well with Duck's holdfasts.

The Glide C is boxed up and waiting for someone to buy it.
