Need a new vise, need help

So I'm looking to buy a new vise and have a work bench that used to have one fitted (before I had it). As you can see from the pic it was a decent size one, the hole pitch is about 6.5" for the mounting. Does anyone know if this is a standard mounting pattern, or do I have to drill new holes? I can do that, but would rather buy a vise that uses the same holes. I'm guessing it's going to be a vise with 5" or 6" jaws. If anyone has a 5" or 6" vise in their garage, it would be appreciated if you could measure the hole pitch - thanks!



Yes, those are cm on my tape

It looks like it was a three hole mount. Most of the ones I have seen use a four bolt pattern. My 6" jaw vise has a four bolt pattern with the hole pattern 5"o.c. square.

it'll be tough to find one that bolts right up. i'd just try to find a good quality vise (hard to do these days) and re-drill.
