Kurt’s Cobra is a five-axis dovetail vise that produces as much as 4,000 lbs of clamping force without distorting workpieces. Its ½" movable jaw stroke enables precise raw stock clamping with less material prep for fast positioning in the vise jaws. It is 2" wide and handles part from 1.375 to 1.800" wide. Designed to quell part vibration for high speed machining of small parts, the vise is suitable for aggressive five-axis machining. Made from 4140 alloy steel, it has high fatigue and torsional strength with high abrasion and impact resistance, the company says.
The Chameleon vise is designed for toolroom, knee mill applications and for use on smaller CNC machining tables. It produces as much as 5,000 lbs of clamping force. It is 3.5" wide with a 4" jaw opening, and can be mounted upright and on both sides. It features predrilled sine holes for use with a receiver vise to achieve 30-degree, 45-degree and 60-degree angle settings. It has thick sidewalls to prevent bending and uses the AngLock design to prevent jaw lift.
Also new is the Sidewinder SDW35 vise, which is 3.5” wide and designed to be mounted to the back of 6" and 8" single station vises.
