Tail Vice/Vise (100mm or 150mm Travel)
Note: The 100mm tail vice is out of stock as of 18/05/2022. It will be available again in approx. 2 weeks. Feel free to place your order, and it will be shipped as soon as it is ready.
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.

Great bit of engineering
This is exactly what I wanted. I'm yet to install it but the quality of the hardware has meant I need to tidy up my bench to match it.
150mm tail vice
Perfect match for the Hntgordon trying plane. Helping take things to the next level. Cheers.
100 mm tail vice
I have been using the tail-vice for a few days now and have quickly become accustomed to clamping pieces of timber that I wish to plane rather than just resting them against a bench stop. It is simple to use and makes for a much safer and more efficient workplace. It is a worthwhile addition to my workbench and is highly recommended
Absolutely top-drawer quality. A joy to use.
Beautiful tail vise. Love it's size as it does what you need, but doesn't get in the way.
