The best-in-class Pattern Maker’s Vice (vise) incorporates new generation non-racking design ensuring precise and significant holding power from minimal crank-handle force, limiting user fatigue through prolonged use.  The Pattern Maker’s Vice (vise) is designed to hold any object, from those with parallel sides through to those with tapers or double tapers.

  • 360° rotation offers four different working heights and unlimited working angles.
  • 90° tilt from vertical to horizontal
  • Full lock on both rotation and tilt functions
  • 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. The jaw size is 160mm x 340mm.
This vice will last you a lifetime. CNC machined to the finest tolerances from brass and aluminium, hand assembled and tested in-house, the HNT Gordon Non-Racking pattern makers vice is an elegant addition to the workshop ensuring years of pleasure for the hobbyist and professional alike. 

A unique design feature of our woodworking pattern makers vice is the hidden thread in a self-cleaning shaft. This self-cleaning system means that no dust or shavings can enter the thread or bearing surfaces, meaning no wear can take place over a long period of time. 

Accessories available for purchase:

  • Cork liners are available here for the front and/or back jaw for better work holding when dealing with timber that is not quite parallel.
  • Tilting vice jaws are available for holding odd-shaped stock like chair legs and musical instrument parts.  The tilting jaw fits into a ½” hole in the back jaw.
  • Download the installation guide for more information here.

A jewel of a tool

Beautiful, functional tool art. As an independent professional woodworker I have a lot of vices. Already this is my favorite. Hold any piece at any angle comfortably. I have it mounted on a slightly taller bench for sawing and shaping.

Thanks for your review Michael. It's our favourite too with the main vice having already accrued more than 6000 hours in our workshop and still going strong!

Very versatile vice

I have been using this vice for around 1 year now. It can clamp virtually anything at many positions. The rebate on the short edge allows me to clamp small pieces and prevents them from falling when I release the vice. I recommend you to get two rubber/cork liners for a better grip. I great upgrade from a common woodworker's vice!

A great piece of engineering

This thing is awesome. I built a short workbench, 42x17", to go with it. And this little thing just clamps everything I throw at it.

Pattern Makers Vice

This vice is amazing. It works in every position very well. I‘m a luthier and the vice makes it much easier to clamp and work on. Thank you!

So Good!

An unbelievably good vice. I’ve made up a small heavy bench for this vice for heavier wood carving jobs. The fitting of the vice was so easy by following Terry’s video online and I feel like I’ve got a solution to getting access to carving areas that have caused difficulty in the past. Awesome vice!
