Tail Vice/Vise (100mm or 150mm Travel)
Our tail vice/vise is designed to hold any piece of wood flat on the top of your bench. It is retrofitable to any bench (in any position on the top) without interfering with the integrity of the top.
The knob is 32mm in diameter, knurled for grip and you will find this knob allows for quick movement with plenty of grip to tighten the vice when holding wood. The vice comes with one solid brass dog that is 1/4" high for low profile work. Other size dogs will be available also or you can make them to suit using 1/2" brass rod.
It is simple to install and it comes with an installation guide. You will need to make a wooden cover plate to go over the top of the vice and this is planed level with the top. If your bench top is thin, this is no problem as you simply make up some wooden packers and glue them in under where the vice is to be fitted.
100mm Tail Vice: The vice body is a hefty 32mm x 35mm x 280mm long with a 5/8" 6 tpi ACME thread for a quick moving action. It gives you just over 100mm travel so you would need to space your bench dog holes at 100mm or less apart.
Weighs 1.3 kg.
150mm Tail Vice: The vice body is a hefty 32mm x 35mm x 370mm long with a 5/8" 6 tpi ACME thread for a quick moving action. It gives you just over 150mm travel so you would need to space your bench dog holes at 150mm or less apart.

Just started building my own bench and after using this vice at Sturt School had to have one for myself! So simple, so efficient and so clever.
What a beautiful piece of kit. Easy to install and works just as promised. Thank you.
This is a great product. It was easy to install and a pleasure to use. This is a must for your workbench.
good product works well.Easy install
This is an excellent alternative to a larger traditional tail vice. It’s well thought out and unobtrusive, with no loss of bench top area and minimal protrusion from the end (less than 50 mm). Easy to install even by hand tools as I did. I recommend cutting the optional under-slot to clear dust and shavings. I bought the 150mm version just to reduce the number of dog holes in the bench top, but I think the 100mm would do everything this does.
