After fielding many requests for a robust, durable and functional non-rotary vise, we have found it. The Peak, is simple, engineered and made in USA, it will last you a lifetime, and you can pass it on to the next generation.
Peak Non-Rotary Vise has taken the design principles that have served them so well with their Rotary Vise and applied them to this new and exciting vise. The PEAK non-Rotary Vise uses the same clamping system as the tried and true PEAK Rotary Vise. The base is slightly smaller and lighter in weight than the Rotary Vise, making this an item to seriously consider if you need a lighter weight travel vise. The base has the durable white powder coat finish that we're known for and it still disassembles and packs flat for ease of transport.
The base also includes an additional hole for the accessory shaft (not included) and all PEAK accessories except our Material Clip will work with the non-Rotary Vise. As with the Rotary Vise, optional midge and saltwater jaws are available for the PEAK non-Rotary Vise (jaws for the Rotary Vise and non-Rotary Vise are not interchangeable).
The PEAK Rotary Vise is an outstanding vise that is, designed and made in USA. It is designed for optimal tying efficiency and ease of adjustment and set-up. Materials (including Stainless Steel, Brass, Tool Steel, and Aircraft Aluminum) are chosen to last a lifetime.
Hardened and tempered tool steel jaws hold hooks securely, from size 2/0 (depending on exact hook wire diameter) down to the smallest you can buy. Adjustments are accomplished with minimal effort. The large stable pedestal base will hold this vise where you set it, and the non-marking feet protect the surface you set it on. The steel base is powder coated white for a durable surface that provides a backdrop you can see your materials against. The base also includes an integrated hook/bead pocket with rounded edges for ease of removal, and two accessory post mounting holes (accessory post not included). The base is designed to pack flat for travel with the vise removed. The rotation resistance adjustment screw provides infinite adjustment and is easily manipulated by right or left handed tiers. A height and length adjustable bobbin cradle are supplied with the vise. Loosening a single set screw allows the vise to be removed from the base for travel.
