The SMW 1/2" Modular Vise uses low profile clamping for a versatile workholding and fixturing system in combination with Saunders Machine Works 1/2" Fixture Plates!
- Soft jaw compatible!
- Steel body and jaws machined in-house by SMW.
- The fixed position Mod Vise Jaw uses diamond pins for quick tram alignment with the Fixture Plate's bolt pattern. SMW Mod Vises will generally not work on non-SMW fixture plates.
- Uses 7/16-20 'clamping bolts' on the Adjustable Jaw to deliver ~2900 pounds of clamping force at 30 ft/lbs torque per bolt- on par with typical 4" machine vises.
- Jaws can be used in reverse orientation along with vise parallels like traditional machine vises (great for finishing work on height-critical parts - see photos for example)
- Video Tutorial on How to Use the Mod Vise.
- See images for minimum clamping height of vise jaws
