If you have ever struggled to position a delicate component in an oversized vice you will find this to be a very useful addition to the workshop. The jaws are 1½" wide, 5/8" deep and open to 1½". The entire vice is just 4 1/8" long, 2 ¾" wide and 1 3/8" high. The fixing hole positions will particularly suit Myford owners but would equally suit any drill, lathe or mill. The kit includes iron castings for the body and sliding jaw and there is an interesting thrust arrangement to ensure that an even load is maintained. All supporting material is included together with drawings and construction notes. Click here for more information.

Designed by Mr. C. Tidy, this vice is of particular value to owners of small milling and shaping machines. The vice stands just 2 3/8"high, winning at least an inch of precious "daylight" over commercial items of comparable rigidity. The jaws are 2 1/2" wide, opening to 2" and the sliding jaw is of box form to minimise distortion when clamping. Swivelling 360°, the vice can be accurately set to any angle. The base dimensions are 4 ½" by 6", allowing a wide choice of tenon or locating positions. The Swivelling Machine Vice is offered as a set of three iron castings, along with all fasteners, steel, phosphor bronze, drawings and constructional notes by Mr. Tidy.

As in so many fields of human endeavour, suitable tools are a prerequisite to progress. Once the sideline of cutlers, instrument making has a long and distinguished history with elite craftsmen working hand-in-hand with surgeons, chemists, physicists, astronomers and industrialists of every flavour to develop the equipment necessary to analyse results then exploit new scientific findings. Within the instrument maker's workshop, highly prized manual skills are developed over many, many years. Filing, sawing, lapping, chasing, honing, scraping and polishing small parts to within infinitesimal tolerances to create world-changing devices. This versatile vice provides movement in virtually all planes, allowing a workpiece to be firmly gripped then locked in exactly the right attitude for further finishing. The 1½" wide jaws open to 1" to accept flat or cylindrical work. The vice's iron base is cast with an integral 4" long tenon so that it can be securely held in a larger bench vice. The kit arrives with all necessary material, drawings and construction notes for this hugely useful platform. Click here for General Arrangement Drawing
