In this video, we show just how useful and versatile a Swindens Bench Vice can be. When you are working carefully with a precious engineering component there is no room for error.
The engineer in the video explains why a versatile bench vice such as the Swindens allows him to work with care and speed on a high-value component with no risk of it falling out from the jaws of the vice.
The engineer also highlights the fact that a Swindens vice (vise) comes with plastic jaws in addition to standard steel jaws. This is particularly important in dealing with delicate components that need working on.
The great thing about a Swindens vice is how versatile it is compared to standard vices. You can move between flat faces and pipes easily and smoothly. Typically, once an engineer has worked with a Swindens versatile bench vice they will not accept working with another brand of vice (vise).
A Swindens vice provides the combination of strength and precision that an engineer needs. The vice is manufactured from high-quality cast iron, and the jaws are made from special alloy steel. The precision of the vice is guaranteed by a high degree of hardness in the steel and by the precision-ground jaws that are polished to a mirror finish. Whilst they are not the cheapest vices, the quality and reliability make them well worth the investment.
