Kurt Manufacturing Company

Minneapolis, Minnesota: Kurt’s broad line of vise accessories add versatility to workholding setups and improve productivity.

3-in-One Jaw Plates For 6 & 8 Inch Vises
Kurt’s 3-In-One Jaw System is a fast and easy way to set vise jaws at any of these seven popular angles: 5°, 10°, 15°, 20°, 25°, 30° and 45°. Kurt’s 3-In-One Jaw System adds versatility to any existing standard Kurt 6-inch and 8 inch vise. They are ideal for small lot sizes and prototype work. The jaw system is a better and more cost-effective option than building a special fixture.

The Kurt 3-In-One Jaw System adds a simple, bolt on jaw with a series of preset patterns with aligning pins. The jaws hold parts precisely like conventional jaw plates but with the extra benefit of allowing aggressive machining while clamping at seven different angles.

The Kurt 3-In-One Jaw System also doubles as a workstop with the additional benefit of acting as a parallel. Overall jaw dimensions are 6” x 1.735” x 0.725” ±0.000787” (0.01mm). Multiple pins in the system include 4 ea. 6mm x 22mm; 3 ea. 6mm x 40mm; 3 ea. 6mm x 58mm, and 3 ea. 6mm x 76mm. Pin sets have a dimensional tolerance of ±0.0007 (0.018mm).
