Bargain Pattern Makers Vice (Vise) - No Racking
This pattern makers vice is a bargain due to some superficial blemishes as seen in the last two photos. This does not affect the life or function of the vice.
Your pattern maker’s vice (vise) is designed to hold any object, from those with parallel sides through to those with tapers or double tapers. To hold tapered objects, you will need the tilting plate which fits into the vice’s back jaw using a ½” dog hole. If holding parallel objects this tilting plate is not required. The tilting plate is an additional purchase and is not included in the price of the vice. This can be purchased here.
You can also custom make a tapered jaw to hold a particular job you have. This can be held in the back jaw using a ½” dowel in the corresponding dog hole.
The pattern maker’s vice (vise) will hold objects up to 150mm (6”) wide. This is reduced to 120mm (4 3/4”) when using the tilting plate fitted.
In both cases, the vice will rotate 360° to give four different working heights and any angle in between. The vice will also tilt 90° from vertical to horizontal and is capable of being locked at any angle.
This vice (vise) has the new generation precision non-racking design which gives you significant holding power with little force on the crank handle. If using your vice a lot, this will significantly reduce your workload over the course of a day.
You can put a leather (or equivalent) soft jaw on the front and/or back jaw for better work holding when dealing with timber that is not quite parallel, which can be purchased here.
