Detailed Description

Benchcrafted Tail Vise

The Benchcrafted Tail Vise is the original flagship of the award-winning Benchcrafted line of workbench hardware. Besides being extremely robust with absolutely precise machining, this vise's real claim to fame lies in its incredibly smooth and effortless operation. Apply a modest spin to the handle and marvel as the vise action first accelerates and then slowly coasts to a stop. This is the way every tool should feel in response to a craftsman's touch.

The Benchcrafted Tail Vise was first conceived to meet the needs of a Roubo-style workbench with a top at least 4" thick, though it can also be installed on thinner benchtops and can be retrofitted to an existing bench.

  • Fully-machined massive 5" dia. cast-iron hand wheel provides momentum and precise control. Designed, cast and machined in the USA
  • Rolled carbon-steel acme-threaded 1¼" dia. screw with 4 tpi pitch strikes a balance between rapid movement & controlled gradual clamping pressure
  • 1" thick acme nut milled from solid billet of cold rolled steel
  • Reversible sliding plate for both right-hand or left-hand bench installations
  • 3/8" thick cold-rolled steel flange, black finished
  • Cold-rolled steel guide rails support the robust sliding plate assembly, which runs in precisely milled grooves
  • Turned wood handle
  • Suede leather jaw liner
  • Includes everything you need to install the vise, except wood
  • All components desiged and made in the USA
