Air-Activated Bench Vise
"My air-activated bench vise should be on the market by the end of the year," says inventor Randy Durham, of Woodville, Texas, who made his first prototype air vise 8 years ago and eventually patented the design. He recently signed on with a manufacturer.
The powered vise allows you to keep both hands free for work. It operates automatically with a foot switch or manually with a crank. It has a 6 1/2-in. maxi-mum jaw opening and swivels 360 degrees on its base.
The 7 1/2-in. wide vise opens and closes with a special vise attachment, aii activated motor and foot valve connecter with air lines to an air compressor. It'l work with any air compressor that produces up to 90 psi of pressure to produce a maxi-mum of 3,500 psi jaw pressure.
Will sell for between $450 and $550, in. cluding vise, valve, and air lines.
