While bigger is usually better when it comes to clamping - sometimes a massive workbench vice doesn't fit the task at hand - whether you are regularly working on smaller material or simply don't have the space to devote to one of our larger vices in the range.
This woodworking vice doesn't cut corners on construction - just materials and size. The cast-iron jaws are 175mm (7in) wide with a working depth of 203mm (8in). The working depth from the guide bar to the top of the vice is approximately 70mm - so is fine for holding small-medium size work. The two steel guide bars are 15.9mm (5/8in) diameter with a 15.9mm (5.8in) rolled thread screw that ensures the vice works well and provides good solid, square clamping strength.
It is designed so that the fear fixed jaw is mounted to the underside of the bench with a mounting block/bench thickness of approximately 60mm so the top of the vice jaw is flush with the table top.
It has a simple peg dog built into the face of the vice that rises approximately 30mm from the top of vice face.
Solid cast-iron and steel construction means that this vice should last a lifetime if its well looked after and cared for.
