Description

A good bench vise is as important as the workbench it is fixed on. This cast-iron vise can be used right out of the box and offers many advantages:

  • Quality: like the “RECORD” woodworking vise in the good old days.
  • Efficiency: a trigger release lever provides quick opening or closing that makes time savings.
  • Accuracy: the moving jaw is canted at the top to compensate for the screw that is located at the bottom. This provides positive clamping when heavier pressure is required.
  • Versatility: an adjustable metal front dog allows larger pieces to be easily clamped when used in conjunction with a bench stop.
  • Safety: the fused tommy bar will bend before the vise become over-stressed.
  • Strength: two 22mm steel slide rods and an asymmetric traction thread main screw ensure rugged and smooth parallel action.
  • Protection: pre-bored holes in the jaw faces will allow protective wooden lining to be mounted to avoid altering parts when clamping.
  • Jaw width is 180mm (7").
  • Jaw opening is 200mm (8").
  • Throat depth is 80mm (3").
  • Weight is 9.5kg (21lbs)

A jaw made to clamp, not to “bite”!

 

A word from the boss 

The Boss found winter long... (19-05-14)

The first snow storm hit us on November 10 and the Boss remembers because he had to finish his autumnal outdoor work in the snow. Since then, the snow and cold settled in and lasted until the end of April. Almost 6 months…

Winter has been long for all but, nevertheless, has had a positive effect on the growth of our internet sales. Woodworkers have used this indoor time to properly equip themselves and keep busy. For those who have not yet completed their projects, there is still two months before closing up shop for some well-earned vacation time.

For the others, like the Boss, have your bicycle tuned and get some fresh air.
