Parrot Pivoting Two-Position Vise
Built like a machinist's vise, the Parrot vise incorporates a unique tightening cam that lets it pivot freely through 360° until you tighten the jaws firmly, locking the vise in place. The system lets you back off the clamp screw just enough rotate the vise for access to any part of a workpiece without releasing it from the jaws. Further, the vise can be lifted from its heavy pivot post and reinstalled horizontally (either side up), maintaining the same pivoting and locking functions. 3-1/2" wide cast iron jaws open to 4-3/4". Screw holes allow mounting shop-made jaw liners of wood or other material for cushioning, holding cylinders or other special functions. There is a 1-3/4" square machined anvil just behind the jaws. The vise weighs 18 lbs.
An optional pair of rubber-lined aluminum tilting jaws can be dropped into the vise to hold objects with sides up to 20° out of parallel; the jaws automatically align themselves as the vise is tightened.
