The Tail Vice and Mounting Brackets Kit is a must-have in the Australian industry
Let's be honest, the standard tail vices you get on some supposedly whiz-bang workbenches and from some (unnamed) other hardware stores just don't cut the mustard. We're sick of sagging vices, dogs that slip incomprehensibly and worst of all, a vice that ends up getting in your way a lot more than it actually comes in handy.
Well, don't fear the useless old tail vice any longer. These beauties are ubiquitous in workshops for a reason; they're the tried and tested, solid built tail vices that gave the workshop must-have such an essential reputation in the first place.
Tail vice screws are commonly available in Australia but lack the extra mounting brackets to prevent sagging over time when just the screw is installed. This vice and mount kit beefs up the installation and prevents sagging once installed. It's a revolutionary kit for the old tail vice and will ensure that your vice is an incredible asset for a lifetime.
Vice Screw Tail & Mounting Brackets
The 4.75mm steel mount plate is mounted to the side of the bench with the vice screw knuckle installed. The 2x 10mm reinforcing steel plates are then installed in the vice jaw cavity along with the screw. When the vice screw is wound, the reinforcing steel plates slide along the mount plate and because of the weight of the material, will completely prevent the vice sagging down over time.
Also available is the economical Tail Vice Screw Only.
The vice screw itself is 29.5mm bright steel bar with a deepcut thread for positive clamping pressure and has a maximum travel of 330mm. Great for clamping wide or long work pieces with an open end holding it in place while working on it.
The quality of the build parts is unparalleled. We're sure you'll find them to be an absolute no brainer.
