Thoroughly engineered to deliver maximum clamping force and repeatability with quick-change features throughout, Orange vices are designed and manufactured in the USA to achieve the ideal balance of performance and longevity. Every vice is covered by a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and craftsmanship.
The range includes 4 and 6 inch dual station, and 6 by 16 inch single station vices. The 4 inch dual station vices offer a compact footprint while the larger vice is available in 17.5 and 20 inch lengths. Every dual station model features independent jaw stations, so dissimilar sized workpieces can be clamped with equal force.
Machined from a solid billet of Dura-Bar iron rather than cast to shape there are no rough sand cast surfaces, every surface of the vice it is either machined or ground and then selectively powder coated. The screw is sealed so that no threads are ever exposed to chip or swarf ingress.
Dual station vices can also be quickly converted into single station vices without any additional hardware. This flexibility is also applied to the 6 by 16 inch single station vice as double station conversion kits are available. Similar in design to the dual station vices but without a centre jaw, the ?xed jaw is held down securely with an angled wedge from underneath, rather than cap screws from above. This allows unobstructed machining of optional soft jaws.
Available in steel or aluminium the optional low-cost soft jaws feature a greater machinable volume than most other jaws on the market. For additional capacity XL stepped jaws can increase the jaw opening from 12 inch to as much as 18.5 inches on the 6 inch dual station vice. Made of cast iron and compatible with all 6 inch vices, the XL Stepped jaws are said to be far more rigid and repeatable than outboard jaw plates used on typical vice setups.
