This double-sided pin vise is an excellent pin vise for holding small parts. The entire handle and tightening ends are knurled for easy hand-tightening. This tool is double-headed so both sides of the pin vise are collet vises. This makes losing a collet impossible and saves time, as changing collets is never necessary.
The handle is hollow so it is possible to remove one collet and use this vise in a bench motor to hold small parts even when a through hole is needed.
The collets in this tool are threaded into the handle and keyed. Unlike other collets, the closing is achieved by drawing the collet into the tool rather than tightening a nut over the tapered head of the collet. The key keeps the collet from spinning in the tool. These two features together make tightening the collet fast and easy.
Collets together will hold all parts smaller than .065" or 1.6mm.
Handle length with both heads attached: 3.86” (98.28mm)
