Kurt's New 3-in-One Jaw System Saves Vise Setup Time for Common Angle Cuts
Minneapolis, Minnesota: Now there's a fast and easy way to set vise jaws at any of seven popular angles. Using Kurt's new 3-In-One Jaw System, parts can be clamped precisely at 5°, 10°, 15°, 20°, 25°, 30° and 45°.
This new and innovative Kurt 3-In-One Jaw System increases the versatility of any standard 6-inch Kurt vise. It's a simple, bolt on jaw system 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.
This 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).
"Kurt's new 3-In-One Jaw System is ideal for small lot sizes and prototype work," reports Steve Kane, global sales and marketing manager for Kurt. "The jaw system is a better and more cost-effective option than building a special fixture. It adds versatility to any existing standard Kurt 6-inch vise at modest cost."
