Groz Rapid Action Vise – 9in. Jaw, Model# 39012
This Groz 9in. Rapid Action Vise has a rapid action mechanism which is unique and different from the conventional quick-release mechanism. To tighten the vise, turn the handle in the usual way. As soon as the handle is turned in the opposite direction, the screw is disengaged, and the front jaw slides freely. No springs, levers or bars. This design is a very useful feature in repetitive work situations for holding different size pieces. This vise also features an adjustable front dog which, when used in conjunction with a bench stop, allows oversize work pieces too large to hold between the jaws, to be securely held. This useful addition provides a normal vise and a tail vise in one tool. Constructed of close-grained gray cast iron, this robust vise has accurately machined housings for smooth sliding movement and true parallel action free of side or cross movement. Vise jaws are equipped with a “toe in” feature, so when fully closed, the jaws meet only at the top to provide even clamping on the whole depth of the piece. The steel main screw has buttress threads for smooth, accurate action and responsive adjustment. Body and sliding jaw have provision for attaching wooden liners to protect the vise, work piece and work tools.
