NC Vise and Carr Lock® System from Carr Lane Manufacturing
Roemheld NC Vise and Carr Lane's Carr Lock System work together to deliver lightening fast fixturing on CNC machines. Watch this dramatic video showing the two in action together.
PRODUCT INFO

Carr Lock® System: A Must See!
The Carr Lock® System from Carr Lane Manufacturing Co. allows accurate locating and clamping at the same time, with the twist of a hex wrench, or just your hand, for mounting quick-changing tooling on a subplate.
PRODUCT INFO

Locking Trunnions: See Them In Action!
Trunnions from Carr Lane Mfg. Co. are rugged, precision bearing mounts for revolving fixtures. Ideal for assembly and welding fixtures, and any other applications where the part must be accessible from all sides. Usually used in pairs, one locking Trunnion and one revolving Trunnion, to distribute the load between them without bending forces. The locking version, shown here, has a friction-cone mechanism that stops the rotor at any angle by tightening the knob handle (loosen knob again to unlock). The revolving version has a free-rotating bearing at both ends of the rotor shaft, with no locking mechanism. Made in USA.

Modular Tiny Vise® Edge Clamps from Carr Lane Manufacturing
Carr Lane Manufacturing's Tiny Vise® M-series incorporates a modular jaw design for greater adjustability. This new modular system allows adjusting your workpiece engagement point by adding or removing spacers. This is useful when using the same fixture for machining a family of parts, or when workpiece size can vary somewhat between batches. Just like our original Tiny Vise®, these mini edge clamps grip the side of a workpiece to keep the top clear for machining. The 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. They look so simple, but work amazingly well! Patent number 5,624,106. Made in USA.
PRODUCT INFO

Tiny Vise®, Low Profile from Carr Lane Manufacturing
Low-profile Tiny Vise® clamps from Carr Lane Manufacturing are ideal for thin workpieces, and whenever downthrust action is not required. These mini edge clamps securely 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. Made in USA.
PRODUCT INFO

Lifting Pins from Carr Lane Manufacturing
Lifting pins from Carr Lane Manufacturing are single-acting ball lock pins with a solid, one-piece body and four balls for high tension loads. The pins are positive locking until released by pushing the button, with a sturdy forged shackle for heavy lifting. Available in steel or stainless steel.
PRODUCT INFO

Toolless Cam Handle Hook Clamp from Carr Lane Manufacturing
This Toolless Long-arm Hook Clamp has a cam handle, and is available with either a plain or tapped arm. The tapped-arm version accepts a wide variety of contact bolts or spindles to increase clamping-height range (the tapped arm is also slightly longer). The tapped arm version is optionally available with a cam handle (shown here), to allow clamping without a separate wrench. Use with an adjustable contact bolt to utilize maximum cam travel. Mounts in a reamed hole or in a Hook-Clamp Mounting Block or Holder (order separately). Ideal in tight places where high clamping force is required. Available in three sizes. Made in USA.
PRODUCT INFO

Slotted Locator Bushings from Carr Lane Manufacturing can be used with L Pins, T Pins, Shoulder Pins, or Carr Lock® Clamps to align two holes without binding. They are a precision bushing, with a tight tolerance in one direction and full relief in the perpendicular direction. Press fit, knurled, or template bushings are available, along with locating tools.
PRODUCT INFO

Self-Retaining Ball Plungers from Carr Lane Manufacturing
Watch a 3D CAD image of Self-Retaining Ball Plungers from Carr Lane Mfg. Co. Due to their self-retaining design, the press-fit ball plungers can be securely installed by hand in an ordinary drilled hole. The slotted end of the thermoplastic body expands to compensate for hole tolerances up to .008" oversize. A sturdy shoulder provides a fixed seating position and positively resists detent force. The installation hole can be counterbored to recess the shoulder.
PRODUCT INFO

Ball Lock Pins from Carr Lane Manufacturing
Ball lock pins from Carr Lane Manufacturing have a ground shank, and offer precision alignment. The pins are positive locking until released by pushing the button, which moves the center spindle forward to allow the locking balls to retract into a radial groove. Available in a wide variety of types and sizes, in steel or stainless steel. Made in USA.

The Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty is the world’s premier time, speed, endurance rally for vintage cars. It’s an annual event that started in 1983, and currently offers more than $150,000 in prize money for the winners.
