Due to supply and production issues, the Tucker Vise is no longer available. We still have a limited supply of the Extra Plate/Stanchion Set.

The Tucker Vise is the best woodworking vise made in the world today. Seldom can such a statement be made, but it can be made of this vise and we have the awards to prove it.

The vise has 13" wide jaws that open 12" and have a 4" throat depth. It has double guide rods, a 1" main screw, and it weighs 50 lb. The most impressive feature is the full rotation and tilt capability – the vise rotates 360° and tilts from horizontal to vertical and can be locked at any combination of points in the two planes. The front jaw is normally locked in the parallel position, but can also be swivelled 10° either way and locked (or left free floating) to hold tapered work.

Another feature is the automatic opening. An adjustable-tension device opens the vise when the top-release bar or the foot pedal is pressed, leaving your hands free to position the workpiece(s). The jaws are fitted with non-marring leather liners. Four 6" round dogs (two in each jaw) hold work up to 13" wide or 15" in diameter. Double guide rods are mounted slightly higher than the screw to prevent work marring. The vise is suspended from a mounting plate that forms half of the tilt hinge. An extra mounting plate and stanchion set is available to mount the vise in a second location.

The main vise parts are cast and machined from ZA-12, an alloy as strong as cast iron, but less brittle, at only 80% of the weight. The castings have a lifetime guarantee against breakage. Other components are made of steel, brass, and aluminum. All parts (hinges, chain, spring, etc.) to build the foot pedal mechanism are included except the wood.

The tremendous capacity of the vise, the integral dogs, the rotation, tilt, swivel, the quick release and automatic opening features let you use this vise for many functions that would otherwise require special jigs and fixtures. It replaces many other specialized tools. Awarded a Design and Engineering award by Popular Mechanics in 1992, the Tucker vise is above all easy to use.

Made in Canada.
