Bench Vice (Vise) - No racking
INNOVATIVE, NO RACKING DESIGN
PRECISION WORK HOLDING
THREAD: 6 TPI ACME for fast, smooth action.
Thread is hidden to prevent wear.
DESIGN & MANUFACTURE: Our own unique design, manufactured by us in Australia
Note: Vice does not come with dog holes drilled in the top of the vice as seen in some of the photos/videos. If you decide to add dog holes once you receive your vice, we recommend not to do them larger than 1/2" as it may compromise the jaw, and you may lose your warranty.

Performed as well as I expected and used on another bench
I have both a shoulder vise and a leg vise in my shop. This vise does everything either of those can do, and do it better. The machining is excellent, the installation is straight forward, the action is smooth and powerful without much force. I have arthritis creeping into my hands and appreciate how easy it is to tighten this down so that a board can be mounted on either side without any slippage. I also like the low profile which greatly reduces my chances of accidently walking into it. I wrote and posted a fuller review of this vise on the Lumberjocks site.

Outstanding quality & service. I have not yet built the bench that this vise will be installed on, but it arrived very quickly, well packaged, in perfect condition. The action is smooth and effortless. None of this came as a surprise as I have the tail vise installed on another bench and have found it a ppleasure to work with.
The build quality is second to none. It was easy to install on my bench which has a 100mm thick hardwood top. I mortised it in by about an inch which resulted with the top of the vice a couple of mm below the bench surface. It is a joy to use. I’m proud that this is made in Oz.
No issues with the vice and it works just as well as I was hoping, and I cannot fault it. The guys in the workshop are all keen to use it and we’ll probably look at upgrading all the benches in the coming years with the front vices. Great stuff guys!
