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! The dual station kit allows you to use one Adjustable Side of the Modular Vise on each side of the fixed base for low profile and higher part density setups.
- 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.
