You can reposition the work and adjust it exactly to your liking without needing three hands. This feature virtually eliminates accidental damage.
The vise can be bolted directly to a bench or clamped in any standard vise; the base has two flats on it. Alternatively, the vise can be side or top mounted through any standard 3/4" dia. dog hole using the auxiliary rod/sleeve/wing-nut assembly, usable on benches from 5/8" to 4" thick.
Finally, the body is arched to let work overhang the edge of a bench when top mounted, giving maximum flexibility of use. The body is made from ZA-12 (the same alloy as used in our Tucker Vise) with a solid brass hub and a repositionable gyratory locking lever. It has three screw slots with bottom counter-bevels for standard wood screws.
Included is a 3-1/2" dia. by 1/2" thick mounting plate with a steel rod. For quick interchange of workpieces, spare 3-1/2" dia. mounting plates are available. For mounting smaller pieces, such as duck heads or bird carvings, a 2" dia. mounting plate with rod is available as an accessory. Patented. Made in Canada.
