TINY VISE™
EDGE CLAMPS

 


Flat Jaw
(Reversible — Serrated or Smooth)




Clamping force is applied by positive screw action with the easy turn of a hex wrench.




Patented design features a slotted countersink.




Setup for
Downthrust Force
(with Bottom Thrust Washer)

All clamps are supplied with an optional Bottom Thrust washer (shown in black). Installing this washer under the clamp will raise the clamp slightly and provide downthrust force during clamping.




Setup for
Horizontal Force
(without Bottom Thrust Washer)

If no downthrust force is required, install the clamp without the Bottom Thrust Washer. Doing so will improve clamping speed because fewer screw turns are required.




The serrated face provides maximum gripping, while the smooth face (turn 180°) avoids marring finished parts.


 
FEATURES: An important new clamping development! These mini edge clamps grip the side of a workpiece to keep the top clear for machining. Patented design features a slotted countersink to provide strong, reliable clamping force with the easy turn of a hex wrench. These compact clamps are ideal for fixturing multiple parts, small or large. Each clamp has both a serrated face (for maximum gripping) and a smooth face (to avoid marring finished parts). These clamps look so simple, but work amazingly well, with major advantages over earlier designs. Patent number 5.624.106. Please click on Video above for a brief demonstration. Made in USA.

CLAMPING ACTION: Clamping force is applied by positive screw action with the easy turn of a hex wrench (not with an unreliable, unsafe eccentric cam as used in other designs). A high-strength Flat-Head Socket Screw engages a mating slotted countersink to exert strong clamping force. Much more durable than other designs.

OPTIONAL DOWNTHRUST FORCE: Clamps can be set up to apply force either at a downward angle or straight horizontally. All clamps are supplied with an optional bottom thrust washer. Installing this washer under the clamp will raise the clamp slightly and provide downthrust force during clamping. If no downthrust force is required, install the clamp without the bottom thrust washer. Doing so will improve clamping speed because fewer screw turns are required.

SIZES: Available in a wide range of sizes, from a miniature #8-32 thread size, up to a powerful 1"-8 thread size with 2500 lbs clamping force — see Dimensions page for part numbers:
 #8-32

 5/16-18
 3/8-16
 1/2-13
 5/8-11
 3/4-10
 1"-8

DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS: Tiny Vise clamps are designed to provide strong clamping force when tightened by hand. Do not exceed the recommended tightening torque.
