It's back! Our popular fixed-centering compact vises have returned. 3rd Generation updates feature a hardened stainless steel body and tighter machining tolerances throughout.  

D4FC-600: 4" width x 6" length
Other lengths available

Improving on traditional self-centering vises, Delta IV is a family of "fixed-centering" multi-axis vises that decouples locating and clamping. Jaw location on the 1st and 2nd axes is provided by serrations on a hardened steel base and matching serrations on a fixed jaw. Clamping force is provided with a fast-acting, high strength steel screw.

The heart of the vise is the patented Delta jaw-retention system, which provides pull-down force and locating on the 3rd axis.
