Hello Laney!

 

The real question appears to be, "Will the mortise press operate if an angle vice is attached?"

 

Because of the up-down motion and the size of the head, you might not be able to attach the vice to the built-in bed and still get full travel with the press.

 

However, many mortise presses have the ability to rotate 180 degree and operate "off the built-in bed."

 

This configuration should provide the extra space and travel needed to use the vice in conjunction with the press.
