YORK Vices

YORK Vices

York vices are made of cast iron with steel jaws. Quality product made in the Czech Republic.

Our mini-vices made of solid cast iron are ideal for all smaller jobs in the workshop or at home. They're especially practical for on-site jobs when all you want is a small clamping device, rather than the burden of larger and heavier clamping fixtures.

Heavy cast-iron vice from YORK

This heavy, stable vice is made by YORK, a Czech firm with a long tradition in toolmaking. An integrated rotary base lets you rotate the vice by up to 45° to either side so that even awkward workpieces can be clamped in a good working position. The collet pliers on the locking screw can be replaced by a standard M10 nut if you only need to rotate the vice occasionally or if they might get in the way. You can also mount the vice without the rotary base. The spindle is enclosed by a cylinder to inhibit the build-up of dirt. The back of the vice is fashioned as an anvil. The exchangeable jaws are made of high-quality steel.

Note: the vice doesn’t have a safety stop at the end of the thread to prevent accidental unscrewing. The spindle can then turn freely, but the front jaw of the vice won’t drop away from the main body. To remove the front jaw, it needs to be pulled out a further 5 cm.
