Built different than conventional style vises, the Palmgren combination bench and pipe vises houses a super strong power tunnel with straight-line pull that assures a lifetime spindle and nut never to wear out. A precision fit of the slide bar eliminates side play and jaw wobble even when clamping with the jaws wide open. The vise spindle and nut are totally enclosed in a square tube casting that protects them from dust, chips and moisture, keeping them lubricated for life. The body is heavier and made of 65,000 psi ductile alloy stress parts. They’re practically indestructible and are 70% stronger than the competitive u-shaped styles.
Straight line pull design - horizontal spindle and nut eliminate thread wear, increases clamping power, reduces drag for easier closing and opening of the vise Replaceable large hardened steel jaws that are serrated for maximum sure gripping under maximum torque Replaceable self-centering hardened steel pipe jaws for maximum working capacity Enclosed construction that keeps contaminants out and lifetime lubrication in Perfect for both indoor and outdoor use and precision slide bar machined for a 002" fit Oversized anvil provides structural integrity and consistent properties of toughness and hardness.
