CARE AND MAINTENANCE

 

Properly cleaned and lubricated your vise will give years of trouble free use.  To clean:  Disassemble all parts and wipe the components clean.  Apply a light coat of oil to all parts with a soft cloth.  Reassemble the vise.

 

INSTALLING A HOOK IN THE VISE

Turn the rear thumb screw until the opening between the tips of the jaws is slightly wider than the wire thickness of the hook.
Turn the front thumb screw until the jaws are parallel. The gap between the jaws should remain slightly wider than the width of the hook to be used.
Insert the hook in the jaws and turn the rear thumb screw until tight. When adjusted in this manner the jaws will hold 3 sizes of hooks without the need of readjustment.
