This versatile example of a mechanic’s vice is capable of providing rock-solid stability, while performing any of its various functions. This is a perfect addition to your workshop and certainly lives up to its "All-Purpose" description.
It has 2 full 360° rotating options: rotating jaws and swivelling base. You can rotate and position your workpiece to whatever angle or position you wish, for ease and convenience. The All-Purpose vice has 3 jaw-type options, allowing you to take on a wide variety of tasks. A standard flat jaw 125mm wide opening to 130mm is fitted with hardened steel jaws. Rotating the jaws by 180° offers 2 more options. An integral pipe jaw grips round section up to 50mm and a third jaw is for small gripping square or round section in a vertical position. An anvil, just behind the rear jaw, gives you a flat area of 60 x 80mm for hammering. The covered lead screw reduces maintenance to a bare minimum; just a little lubrication is needed now and again.
Very solidly made the main parts are high quality cast iron with the main lead screw, jaws and handles of hardened steel. The vice has 4 mounting holes for bolting onto your bench.
