Tail Vice/Vise (100mm or 150mm Travel)

$315.00 AUD

Note: Our 150mm tail vices are out of stock. Please place your order and we will post your vice by the end of April.

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. 
Weighs 1.6kg.

100 mm tailvise

The first vise I purchased has become indispensable. This is a second for use on a novel low bench application.

best tail vice in the world.

This is my second 100mm tail vice from HNT Gordon. It was my second, and likely won't be my last because they are such a fantastic vice. I really needed it this time as I needed to install the vice directly over the top of one of my rails which support the benchtop from underneath. The HNT tail vice allows this because it is set into the top surface while having nothing protrude through the bottom of the bench.

Tail vice

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.
