ARC Versatile Milling Vices - with swivel base

ARC Versatile Milling Vices


  • The vice may be used on its own or with the swivel base supplied.
  • Angle Lock clamping. When tightening the vice, the angled face on the nut transmits its clamping force both forwards and downwards via a self-aligning spherical segment (an ARC specified improvement). The spherical segment locates in a corresponding recess inside the movable jaw preventing the jaw from lifting off the guideway. A small amount of jaw lift is possible depending on the type of work being held. (A little fettling in the area of the nut casting can improve the accuracy if required.)
  • A friction reducing thrust ball bearing increases clamping pressure when closing the vice.
  • Both ends of the fixed jaw have an M8 threaded hole for mounting a work stop (not included).
  • For light work, the capacity of the vice can be increased by mounting the jaw plates on either end of the jaws or even on the top of the moveable jaw. Note: The fixed and moveable jaw holder height may vary. If necessary, pack/shim as required if using the vice in these configurations.
  • Material: Grey cast iron.
  • Supplied with swivel base marked in 1 degree increments, locking handle, 2 Tee bolts and 2 locating keys.

Note: The protractor index mark has been deliberately omitted from the vice.


For greater accuracy, an index mark should be scribed on the vice with the swivel base properly located on your milling table with location keys and the fixed jaw clocked square to the table.
