Vice for Second-Operation Vertical Machining

New SideWinder Vise mounts to the back of all industry standard 6" (152-mm) vises. It provides vertical workholding for second operation machining in the same setup, reducing setup time in order to improve throughput and productivity levels using existing machine tools and existing vises. Featuring the original Kurt Anglock design for decreasing jaw Vice for Second-Operation Vertical Machiningdeflection, the SideWinder distributes clamping force evenly and precisely across the full jaw surface. The Anglock® design in the moveable jaw reduces jaw lift. It also features a round nut that controls deflection. Additional SideWinder vise features include integral bracket with stabilization feature allowing mounting to the machine table on the movable end of the vise. It also has a workstop to position the height of the part. The elevated position of the SideWinder vise allows for longer reach machining and does not interfere with the operating envelope of the host vise. The SideWinder is well suited to all types of machining operations including precision boring, tapping, drilling and finishing.
