CarvesmartTM Vise Jaw System

NEW! CarvesmartTM System for simplified jaw changes. The patented CARVESMART Quick Change Vise Jaw System is a complete package of dovetailed jaws for production and toolroom vises that are accurately changed in seconds. CARVESMART extruded aluminum soft jaws can be saw cut to any length.

  • CLAMP NUTS: 1018 steel with QPQ surface treatment. QPQ is wear and corrosion resistant. It also adds fatigue strength and lubrication to the surface. Smooth as silk.
  • SPEED SCREWS: Black oxide, alloy steel differential screw. The RH/LH similtaneous travel moves at twice the speed of a standard single lead screw. It lifts and pulls the clamp nut on to the dovetail without gauling.
  • SMARTstopTM is an internal to the jaw set, slot and pin system for jobs that repeat. SMARTstopped front loading jaws will relocate +/-0.0003".
  • Extruded jaw stock can be cut to any length from 1/2" to 94" available in five profiles.
  • Fully accessorized with dovetailed hard jaws, 1018 and ductile cast iron jaws.
