This industrial grade vice is manufactured from grey iron castings, a material renowned for its immense strength and durability. The grey iron castings are precision CNC machined to ensure that mating surfaces have minimal levels of play to ensure that the head and the body of the vice glide back and forth in a controlled, yet smooth movement. The hardened main spindle has an acme rolled thread which allows for a fast open and close mechanism. The spindle is fully enclosed, making it protected from dust and airborne debris found in busy work environments.
The vice mechanism is threaded through a malleable iron nut which is located internally to the vice, ensuring maximum contact to the thread is achieved which keeps the vice's jaws constantly aligned. Mounted onto a cast iron swivel base, the vice body can be rotated through a full 360°. The swivel base has two locking levels which are cleverly and conveniently located on each side of the base and can be rotated out of the way when the vice is in use. The base itself is pre-drilled, allowing you to mount it to any workbench whilst keeping it square to the edge.
THIS 4" HEAVY DUTY VICE LIVES UP TO IT'S CLAIMS, IT IS SUPERB QUALITY THROUGHOUT AND IS REMENISCENT OF THE 'RECORD' BRAND OF YESTERYEAR. I HAVE NO HESITATION IN RECOMMENDING IT TO ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED IN PURCHASING ONE. MY ONLY CRITICISM BEING THAT I WOULD PREFER ADDITIONAL DELIVERY OPTIONS, AS I AM A WIDOWER WHO LIVES ALONE. WHILST THE PARCEL FORCE NEXT DAY DELIVERY IS CHEAP AT £5.49, WHEN I CONTACTED PF FOR AN APPROX DELIVERY TIME, ALL THEY WOULD COMMIT TO IS BY 1700 HOURS. I WOULD BE WILLING TO PAY A BIT EXTRA FOR A DEDICATED TIME SLOT, SUCH AS THAT PROVIDED BY THE DPD COURIER.

When it says heavy duty, it means heavy duty. This vice will certainly outlast me. With the swivel base, it is an extremely versatile addition to my workshop, and at this price, you can't go wrong.
