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 and locating positions.
This low and substantial Swivelling Machine Vice is offered as a set of three iron castings, along with all fasteners, steel, phosphor bronze, drawings and construction notes by Mr. Tidy.
