Description

Installing a tail vise is notoriously difficult, usually requiring a section of workbench to be cut away and rebuilt around a complicated vise mechanism. Not so with this one. It can be quickly incorporated into a new bench construction or easily retrofitted to an existing bench without major surgery.

The end plates are symmetrical, so you can install the T-handle and quick-release lever in a right- or left-handed orientation, allowing the vise to be mounted at either end of the bench.

Installation is straightforward: using the included hardware, attach the mounting plate to the underside of the bench, then register and secure the vise mechanism to the plate. Using wood that you supply, add a custom-made jaw the same thickness as the bench skirt.

The quick-release mechanism has a simple on-off lever that engages or disengages the Acme-threaded screw, which can apply force (up to 300 lb) in both clamping as well as spreading applications - something not possible with any other quick-release tail vise.

Maximum travel is 7 3/4". The body is ductile iron with zinc-alloy end plates, steel shafts and guide rods, and a maple handle. Requires an unobstructed mounting area at least 17" × 6 1/2" on the underside of the bench top.

Made in Canada. Patented.
